Photos of closed Walter Reed 5 years after it closed

We recently went back – this time to see Building One and revisit Building Two.  It was cold, still the tail end of winter.  The grounds looked proud as ever.  But the buildings have started to give up on the inside.   Which made me wonder if they know they are no longer needed.

I’m a terrible photographer – but here’s the Command Suite – minus all the cool historical photos of old Presidents…

Eisenhower Suite

Down the hall from the Eisenhower Suite was another Suite, where General Pershing lived.

In need of a good vacuuming – still very cozy and warm with lots of sunlight and wood paneling.
