Walter Reed's Dark Secrets

The Fight Back (DC)
October 10, 2010

Walter Reed Medical Center has secrets. In its Pulitzer Prize winning series in 2007, the Washington Post revealed a few of Walter Reed's more recent secrets when it exposed the inadequate conditions and care injured soldiers were being subjected to. But the Post didn't discuss Walter Reed's older and darker secrets. As 62.5 acres of the 113 acre campus is being turned over from the military to the District, it's time to come clean about Walter Reed's history.

Stephen Whatley is chair of Advisory Neighborhood Commission 4A, which includes Walter Reed. Seven or eight years ago, men in orange hazmat suits were swarming around the campus, said Whatley. Nobody, not even Walter Reed's immediate neighbors, including Whatley, has been given an explanation for the individuals in the hazmat suits. Whatley questions whether they were searching for something that had escaped from the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology.
