Please help my fellow brothers in arms

I'm in the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division. I fortunately live off-post. For a year before my first deployment, I lived in barracks. They were condemned, due to lead paint chips, mold, rust, and asbestos poisoning. We still lived in them for six months following the condemnation. Fortunately, those buildings were torn down and my new soldiers live in brand new barracks. However, there are still thousands of troops living in unlivable conditions. I urge you to follow the instructions in this video and call a congressman.

You are a hero, thanks for all you have done.

I read the comments and it is too bad that people that too ignorant to realize that you guys are protecting their ability to say utterly atrocious things about our troops.

Hockeytown thanks I appreciate it

I know this may sound trite but while we do what we can, the real heros are the men whom have made the ultimate sacrifice. But I do appreciate your words.

I tend to be pretty liberal ESPECIALLY for a military guy, but some peoples' ideas just blow my mind!

Also Harbinger, not sure what you mean, but if you go to CNN.com it is on the front page.

Thank you for serving and all that you've done.

I just wanted to post an update as this has gained more headlines now. I believe it was Glenn Beck discussing this on his show this morning on my way in to work. None-the-less, let's hope they get this situation fixed ASAP!

I'm in the Army National Guard, and when I went through AIT a year ago I was living in condemned barracks as well. Most of the rooms had black mold growing in them. I got a pretty bad ear infection, most likely from the mold, that led to some minor hearing loss.

It's not fun. It's hard to believe that some of the Nation's finest are forced to live like that...

Thanks. I was in the campus library studying for a final and could not listen to the vid.
