In September 2019, the Army Inspector General released a damning report of on-base housing conditions. One of the report's key findings was that, of the surveyed residents, a whopping two-thirds not only expressed concerns about the health and safety of their properties. They also said that they would happily move off-base if they could do so without suffering any resulting financial hardship.
What kind of health and safety issues are we talking about here? The better question is, what health and safety issues AREN'T we talking about? They range from leaky ceilings and woodworm-infested floorboards, to water quality issues and floods of raw sewage, to faulty wiring and recurrent gas leaks -- and this doesn't even cover the BIG fucking problems with lead paint, mold, and asbestos.
The AIG also found that when on-base residents complained about their properties some housing providers responded by being petty assholes -- hitting them with bullshit fines for things like poor yard maintenance, as well as excessive fees and deductions when the tenant moved out. One housing provider was even called out by a Congressman after tenants in his constituency complained about vengeful housing company workers engaging in "drive-by harassment" and denying them requested repairs.
It looks like things are going to change in the wake of this report, though. In its aftermath, the five biggest on-base housing providers Voltron'ed together to form a coalition aimed at, um, lobbying the government to ignore the report and block any military housing reform proposals that come their way -- something that isn't likely to be difficult considering that Trump had already shown he doesn't give a damn about reforming on-base facilities.
