After the father of a soldier posted a video to YouTube showing poor living conditions in Ft. Bragg barracks, Fort Carson has responded by opening their barracks for inspection.

Brigadier General Dennis Rogers is responsible for maintaining barracks throughout the Army. Rogers admitted the conditions at Fort Bragg, shot on home video by the father of a soldier just back from Afghanistan, showed mold inside the barracks, peeling paint and a bathroom drain was plugged with sewage.

A complete barracks inspection was conducted by unit leaders and senior commanders at Fort Carson. Officials submitted a complete report on April 28.

Rogers says if inspections nationwide find extensive repairs are necessary, soldiers will be moved until the fixes are completed.

Fort Carson officials will host a tour, including some of post's oldest and newest barracks facilities, for the media on Friday, May 2.
