  • Good thing alarm service is included. After the shooting across the street this morning, you might want that!

    Hey, some of us care about being close to a Military base, though that’s not really CLOSE :)

    • Oh of course – no disrespect to the military – just saying it’s not close too

        I wonder if the agent somehow thought the Old Soldiers’ Home was a military base.

        Wonder if they thought that might attract military families, as they have a preference for that type of tenant?

      The closest possible one would be Forest Glen to this address, but that’s still kind of far when you consider the gridlock on 16th. Are they counting the old walter reed campus as another close by base???

        Is there any sort of military complex near Fort Totten?

          Not without a time machine. (Though if you do have a time machine, this location is very convenient for an 1863 base commute.)
