If you begin digging just a little bit on the subject of “mold in military base housing” you will see a hundreds of stories. The stories go back years. AN IDENTICAL STORY RAN ON CNN IN 2012, complete with an appearance by U.S. Senator Mark Warner, R-VA.  But seven years later, EVERYBODY in the DOD is surprised by this story.  While lots of folks in the DOD don’t do housing, there are Assistant Secretaries of each Service Branch do — specifically, the Assistant Secretaries for Energy, Installations and Environment do. How did they all not see this and why are they still employed?
