Survey shows U.S. military families far more negative about housing than landlords claim

Military landlords often report high tenant satisfaction scores in annual surveys. But an expanded survey of families, conducted by a nonprofit, shows the opposite: Across the U.S., most responding military families have negative views of base housing, echoing Reuters investigative reports.

U.S. military families are expressing far deeper dissatisfaction with their housing conditions than their private landlords claim, according to a granular survey of tenants at more than 100 bases across the country that was recently presented to Congress.

The survey, conducted by the nonprofit Military Family Advisory Network, was initially publicized in February. Three months later, the group has released a more detailed analysis of the results, providing a base-by-base look at the survey findings and a window into the problems most frequently cited.

Using this expanded information, Reuters has created a searchable database of base-by-base results, found here.

For more than a year, Reuters has exposed slum-like conditions dogging the Department of Defense housing privatization program, describing how private landlords reap billions in payments even as tenants clamor for repairs. The armed forces began privatizing base housing for military families two decades ago.

So either the for profit private housing people are full of shit, or the same firms running these places are defrauding the American Taxpayer in some shape or form and the DoD is full of shit to privatize this matter, when they are now getting over 715 Billion to do exactly what.......................and they are still full of shit...................sounds like what trump does with his housing units right along with Kusher, they scam the system.............................

1. And the slum landlords running the administration

Can't give a shit.

The condition of privately-owned military housing needs to be exposed on 60 Minutes or something.
