Problem solved

You probably saw or heard about the WaPo report on the crappy conditions wounded soldiers experience at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Mold, mice, cockroaches--all the comforts of home (in the Lower Ninth Ward post-Katrina).

Well who said publicity doesn't get results? Action has been taken immediately to remedy the situation. According to the Army Times:
Soldiers at Walter Reed Army Medical Center's Medical Hold Unit say they have been told they will wake up at 6 a.m. every morning and have their rooms ready for inspection at 7 a.m., and that they must not speak to the media.

"Some soldiers believe this is a form of punishment for the trouble soldiers caused by talking to the media," one Medical Hold Unit soldier said, speaking on the condition of anonymity.
