Nat’l Guard Troops Sickened by Food They Were Given in DC

Unacceptable.

After the attempted insurrection of January 6th, the National Guard was deployed to Washington DC by the droves.  Tens of thousands of troops in total.

The show of force was meant to dissuade any further violence that was being plotted for Joe Biden’s inauguration, but has been decried in recent weeks as being largely a waste of resources.

To make matters worse, it now appears as though these troops weren’t even being cared for properly by those who requested their presence.

Members of Michigan’s National Guard have complained of receiving undercooked meals or food containing metal shavings during their stay in Washington, D.C., to protect the U.S. Capitol, according to news reports, as lawmakers from the state call for a new food provider.

The disclosures — which first surfaced in Michigan news outlets — were the latest reports of alleged mistreatment of National Guard personnel in the nation’s capital, where Guard members from several states were deployed both before and after the Jan. 6 riot.

The entire Michigan delegation in the U.S. House wrote a letter to the National Guard on Tuesday saying, “We understand that the decision was made to provide contracted meals to support the entire federal response stationed at the Capitol. However, it is clear that these contracted meals are poorly prepared, oftentimes inedible, and highly inadequate to support our soldiers.”

Michiganders and their elected officials were incensed.

The lawmakers and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer were informed of the food issues in mid-February – and problems were initially resolved — but new complaints emerged this past weekend, The Detroit News reported.

“It is completely unacceptable that our men and women serving in Washington D.C. are being hospitalized due to the food they are being provided,” the letter from the lawmakers said.

Authorities would later clarify that no “hospitalizations” took place, but that several members of the Guard were being treated for “gastrointestinal distress”.
