Pentagon (AP) Army officials say they are inspecting every barracks building worldwide after finding bad conditions at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.

Brigadier General Dennis Rogers is responsible for maintaining barracks throughout the army. He told reporters at the pentagon most inspections were done last weekend, and he hasn't seen the final results. But he says in cases where extensive repairs are
Necessary, soldiers will be moved until the fixes are completed.

Rogers acknowledged the conditions at Fort Bragg that were shot on home video by the father of a soldier just back from Afghanistan. There was mold inside the barracks, peeling paint and a bathroom drain was plugged with sewage.

Rogers says, “we let our soldiers down.”
