FORT HOOD — When Spc. Kellen Chunn, his wife Kimberly and their two children moved into their home shortly after Kellen returned from a deployment to South Korea, the family began noticing problems almost immediately: Especially with their 14-year-old daughter, who has brain cancer and often requires the use of a wheelchair.

“We didn’t even get a working stove until April of this year,” said Kimberly, who also requires a wheelchair after major back surgeries. “On Friday we called (maintenance) because the breaker panel has water and rust coming out, pouring down the wall. They sent a plumber because it was water related — he came in and just said there was nothing he could do because it was electric.”

The same complaints mentioned in this article have been going on for years. Stating you can't fix something if you don't know its broken just doesn't cut it. If, as the commander, you don't know there's a problem thats existed for many years then somebody in that precious chain of command is failing miserably to do their job! Nobody wants to tell "the old man" bad news. In this case there's some people who ought to be courtmartialed for dereliction of duty. Housing on post wasn't this bad when it was owned and run by Americans. Foreign companies don't care about our soldiers and their families aren't even thought of!
