Ed Frawley, father of Sgt. Jeff Frawley of the 82nd Airborne, took the video when he went to Fort Bragg earlier this month to welcome his son home from a 15-month deployment in Afghanistan, the story stated.
The barracks had much mold, open drains leaking sewer gas, broken and rusted restroom fixtures, and peeling lead-based paint, which Frawley caught on his 10-minute video, the story noted.
On Monday, Frawley received a phone call from the Army’s vice chief of staff, who agreed that the deplorable barracks required immediate remediation, the story added.
