Army Times 11.10.03

Acting Army Secretary Les Brownlee said Oct. 25 that sick reservists living in Fort Stewart barracks without air conditioning or indoor toilets will be moved to better housing --and some might be sent to other military bases if that means they could get faster medical care.

Brownlee traveled to the post following complaints from sick and injured reservists who said theyve waited months for surgeries and doctor appointments while Fort Stewart struggles to care for more than 20,000 active-duty and reserve troops who recently returned from Iraq.

The people here at Fort Stewart ... did what they could with what they had,Brownlee said after touring Stewarts hospital and barracks. But the Army has more assets.

And well focus those assets to solve any problems that we found here.

There are 633 sick reservists living in Spartan concrete barracks normally used to house National Guard troops during training exercises at Fort Stewart.
