Army Barracks conditions in 82nd Fort (ft) Bragg

I don't know about you, but this made me a little sick to my stomach..and a whole lot disgusted!

Our wonderful men and women, who are sacrificing so much for us, deserve so much better than this!

Whether you approve or disapprove of what our country is involved in as far as the war is concerned, you HAVE to be angry about this sorry mess!

The deterioration of our military has been going on through several administrations. My son's last post was in Fairbanks. He developed respiratory problems while he was there, no doubt it could be attributed to the mold growing up the walls. He was deployed several times overseas and each time his problems would clear up. He ended up with pnuemonia and it was several months after he returned home before the stopped coughing and wheezing. This was a young, healthy guy who didn't smoke.
If we are going to maintain a military, it should be a mighty force endowed with all the best equipment and facilities. And these soldiers should be able to make a living wage. Anything less is our national shame.

There is absolutely no excuse for this!

I have bivaced in tents that were more sanitary.

I understand that the money is going to the war effort but this is ridicules and I suspect some commander is gonna swing over this video..first for billeting solders in the filth and second for allowing a civilian to film this..

Couldn't see it but I can imagine. I presume the video was taken down as there was a outcry.

guyk..seeing that really made me sick to think that our people are coming home to this!

I hope something is done about it..and soon!

Jan said...

Pink Icing..I am sorry that the video was made unavailable.

I am trying to find some way to post it again..maybe, I can find out how to do it.

I'm not surprised..it was pretty awful to see!

Oops, I missed it.
It is a shame when our military are not treated with the respect they deserve.
