Investigation launched, repairs started after report on Walter Reed

In their continued coverage of conditions at Walter Reed, Dana Priest and Anne Hull of The Washington Post report that while Michael J. Wagner directed the Medical Family Assistance Center at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, he also was seeking funders and soliciting donations for his own new charity, based in Dallas, according to documents and interviews with current and former staff members. Walter Reed launched a criminal investigation of Wagner last week after The Post sought a response to his charitable activities while also running the Army's largest effort to help outpatient soldiers.

Additionally, repairs to Building 18 were started on Monday after The Post reported on the deteriorating conditons in its series "The Other Walter Reed."
