Military families testify about ‘slum-like’
conditions in some private housing facilities
Survey: Conditions at Private Military Housing Facilities are not unique to specific companies.
Some military families find mold, lead paint, rats and roaches in privatized base housing.
The Families testified that some private based housing done by contractors, is full of lead, mold, rats and roaches.
That’s according to a survey by a non-profit Family advisory network.
A Family in Maryland that participated in that survey say a rainstorm caused flooding and that exposed Lead paint that made them sick.
They reached out to the Housing Company, Corvias.
A spokesman said Providing housing for our armed service members is a privilege and Corvias is making change necessary to meet the “gold standard” level of service both we and our residents expect.
Military Families haven’t gotten gold level service.
Some Military Families are testifying about their experiences; national security correspondent Jennifer Griffin reports from the Pentagon.
