The father of a soldier who spent 15 months in Afghanistan and then came back to live in horrid conditions at Fort Bragg didn’t much like the way his hero son was being treated. So the dad posted a YouTube video of the barrack’s mold, rust, peeling lead paint and sewer problems. It worked. According to CNN, repairs are already happening. Also, new housing is in the works, but that project is running behind schedule.
I have to give a shout-out to the the Army, though, for promoting Energy Star and LEED certification for new buildings to, a memorandum on sustainable design and development declares, "reduce the total ownership cost of facilities; improve energy efficiency and water conservation; provide safe, healthy and productive built environments; promote sustainable environmental stewardship; and reduce environmental impact footprint of operations."
