    U. S. Senator Gary Peters, a former Lieutenant Commander in the U.S. Navy Reserve, questioned the Service Secretaries and Service Chiefs from all branches of the U.S. military at a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing regarding the poor living conditions servicemembers and their families have reported across the country in privatized housing on military bases. Peters shared the story of Army Specialist and Coldwater native Rachael Kilpatrick and her husband Calvin, a Kalamazoo native,(all pictured right) who were living in uninhabitable conditions at a property on-base Fort Bragg, North Carolina. SPC Kilpatrick and her husband lived in a house that was recently deemed 'unlivable' due to an infestation of termites and black mold. Peters also stressed to the military leaders that they must take immediate action to hold the landlords of these properties accountable. The hearing on privatized military housing came following a troubling news report about living conditions for service members. Below is a video of Peters talk with those military leaders and some images of the damage of the home at that base.
