The View From Ft. Howard Veterans Hospital Grounds

You may already be aware of the ongoing efforts to save the Fort Howard Veterans Affairs Medical Center property - the old Ft. Howard VA Hospital - for veterans only. The situation is rapidly heating up, and I shall continue working on it partly through a series of blog posts on this web site. The VA and commercial property developers are intent on building 1400 living units, several retail outlets and some commercial office spaces on the Ft. Howard VA grounds. They will have to have a VA medical clinic there, and a small clinic is all there is in use there today. The local community knows, many veterans (including myself) know that 400 living units plus more VA health care facilities is the best way to redevelop that property.

For everyone to understand what the Ft. Howard VA has that is extremely valuable to the veterans community, and the local Ft. Howard/Millers Island/Edgemere/Dundalk community, all must see what the view is like from that VAMC property. On Flickr, I have uploaded a set of videos and photos of that Patapsco River/Chesapeake Bay waterfront property view for you:
