Troops guarding the Capitol sickened, hospitalized due to ‘below substandard’ food

It was reported on the news this evening that troops from Michigan guarding the Capitol have been given “below substandard quality” food – contracted by the Pentagon -- that caused at least 59 of them to become ill and some to be hospitalized. Meals reportedly contained feathers, metal shavings or undercooked meat, while some were moldy and many inadequate in quantity.

Best to view in "Original" because other versions resized by Pbase are decidedly

What on earth is happening to this country???

Absolutely horrible how they are treated. Prison food is probably better. They should get the best. The dark mood fits the news story . V

Sounds like an intentional attack?

That's just awful and totally unacceptable. Those patriots deserve so much better than that.

When you think things can not get worse, then something new arrives. Incredible that those soldiers are not receiving good food.

When I heard that on the news at first I thought it was sort of joke.
These soldiers men and women will be glad to leave DC, tomorrow would not be soon enough.
Nice Dome shot of the Capital Helen I think the residence will be heard from in the near future.
