Hundreds of Marines are moving into a moldy barracks in North Carolina that has gone further downhill since being tepidly rated “degraded but adequate” during a building inspection in 2019.
According to one Marine who provided photo and video evidence, HP 225, the new home for a company of Marines assigned to 3rd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment at Camp Lejeune has signs of poor maintenance, including cockroaches, rampant mold, and missing beds and furniture.
Indeed, a walkthrough of the three-story barracks on Nov. 2 revealed mold on the ceiling, walls, chairs, and mattresses in at least two rooms, despite the building having been deemed to have “no significant issues” in June. In reality, there are many.
