Question: Why Walter Reed?

I thought the feds were closing Walter Reed, and that Bethesda Naval Hospital was where Presidents got their medicine on? I obviously missed something.

4. Thanks - and thanks Jane Q Public

I didn't realize there had been a merger. Now it makes more sense.

2. Proximity, in a potential emergency situation ... would be one possible explanation ...

I don't know if he was closer to one or the other, just throwin' it out there ...



Edit: Or what Garrett said lol ...

3. The old WR did close.

The facility in DC closed, and then WR services moved out to Bethesda with the Naval hospital.
