8. From the article:
It sounds like they are moving the current Walter Reed to a upgraded facility. If that is the case (and it saves money), then I think it is a good move. (I could be misunderstanding the issue, though).

Are they moving the entire hospital to a new location, or just renaming a wing of the Naval Medical Center?
