About 1,200 Fort Bragg, North Carolina soldiers are being displaced after an inspection last week by Sergeant Major of the Army Michael Grinston, who found their barracks to be moldy and unlivable, according to Military.com. “Army leaders have committed substantial resources to address the barracks issues to ensure our soldiers are taken care of throughout the process,” the service said….

The Honolulu Board of Water Supply has detected a minor amount of a chemical that naturally occurs in coal, oil and gasoline in a monitoring well near the Red Hill Bulk Fuel Storage Facility,” AP reported. A leak at the facility last year displaced many Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam families for months. The state’s health department and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency say the low levels will not cause any health effects, but they agreed the situation should continue to be monitored.
