Fort Bragg Needs Cadets - Cub Cadet Lawn Mowers...

This makes no sense. There are too many soldiers stationed at Bragg for this to happen.

Grass and weeds grow high Tuesday near housing along Armistead Street on Fort Bragg.

If you've noticed the grass on parts of Fort Bragg is unkempt, it is.

Fort Bragg officials say budget constraints have forced them to cut back on mowing. And although they want the post to look pristine, they're limiting in-house resources - soldiers - from cutting the grass so they can focus on combat readiness.

"We take pride in Fort Bragg and want it to look a certain way," said Audrey Oxendine, acting operations officer in the Operations and Maintenance Office. "We're working with what we have."

A question about the post's grass maintenance came up during a town hall meeting earlier this month. Someone questioned officials why some parts of post aren't as well maintained.

The land, which includes Pope Field, is maintained by three methods: a contractor, individual tenants and units responsible for their areas.


Fort Bragg encompasses 162,816 acres. Soldiers use about 146,800 of that for training.
You're not to be so blind with patriotism that you can't face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who does it or says it.
