WASHINGTON - For 96 years, the 6900 Georgia Ave. address of the Walter Reed Army Medical Center was as famous for the military as 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. has been for the rest of the nation. But a panel appointed by President Bush voted yesterday to shut down the historic hospital that has treated Presidents, generals, congressional and foreign leaders, and hundreds of thousands of wounded warriors and vets, including more than 4,300 from Iraq. If Bush and Congress approve longchamp tote bags, the action by the Base Realignment and Closure Commission will take the hospital's name and its 2,000 workers to a new complex on the grounds of the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda Michael Kors Satchel, Md. Commission members said the hospital's treatment and research facilities were outdated. "It needs to be modernized," said commission Chairman Anthony Principi. Since opening on May 1, 1909, Walter Reed has set standards of excellence while treating about 14,000 patients annually. All Presidents since 1909 have visited the sick and wounded at Walter Reed, and President Dwight Eisenhower was treated for heart ailments and later died at the Army hospital in 1969. Former First Lady Barbara Bush was treated for Graves' disease at Walter Reed michael kors wallet, and Gens. Douglas MacArthur, George Marshall and John (Black Jack) Pershing died there. In other action, the commission went against Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and voted to keep open military accounting and research centers in upstate Rome, saving nearly 1,200 jobs. In another slap at Rumsfeld, a knowledgeable GOP source predicted that the commission would vote today to keep open Ellsworth Air Force Base for B-1 bombers in South Dakota. "We've been assured it won't be closing," the source said. rsisk
