you are entitled to your doubts, but this is what I remember my mother telling me. As she died in 2010, can't confirm or get better detail. I can say it was all by public transitr, mainly streetcars as Capital Transit's Cabin John Line did have a stop albeit seriously downhill from Army Map. Walk up in the AM down in the PM. The two War Dept outfits were the Army Map Service and "Beach Erosion Bpoard" as I remember. The latter studied ocean beach details in order to pick the spots for the Allied landings.
