Saga of the Old Soldiers’ Home Golf Course Cont. Changes Coming? Thanks to Grant for passing on from Stars & Stripes:

“The head of the Armed Forces Retirement Home agency was removed Thursday from his job operating two military retirement homes after years of festering financial problems at campuses in Washington and Mississippi, said a senior Pentagon official.

Tillotson pointed to the golf course at the Washington campus as an example of a largely untapped potential moneymaker.

“The current administration treated [the course] as a cost issue. When we did some research on this, we said, ‘There’s an asset here,'” Tillotson said. “This is a model that many other retirement communities pursue across the country. We’ve seen no movement by the retirement home staff on driving these issues in a meaningful way.”
