The housing problems that are impacting our military families need serious attention.
In response to recent complaints by military families about living conditions in privatized residences, the Navy has announced that it will conduct a survey to give a voice to residents impacted by the problems.
Adm. John Richardson, chief of naval operations, directed the survey, which is different than the standard annual questionnaire given to residents, according to a news release from Navy Installations Command, the headquarters responsible for service bases worldwide.
“It is clear in many cases, we have fallen woefully short of this obligation and upon reviewing the issues surrounding housing, it is apparent there is culpability around the table.”
Hopefully this is a step in the right direction that will lead to long term solutions.
