I was stationed in Korea and Ft. Drum. I never experienced living conditions like this. I served in Iraq in 2004. I was luckily at a camp that had outstanding amenities, especially compared to your son in Afghanistan. I remembered how tired and stressed I was after coming back from my tour. I don't know what I would have done if I came home to that. There are no words.
When I visited Ft. Bragg in 2006 with my German comrads, there was a budget of
$ 285 million for the sole purpose of building new barraks. (They just finished building a simulator for convoy driving).
So, where did all the money go, when in 2008 the barraks were in the condition shown??
I am concerned about the not closed drainage system. It is not all about the smell of sewergas, it is a high explosive gas and it is not code conform.
Is there no building inspector?
