Just shows you the low regard local politicians have for the Guard.

SPC Michael Duricko, Ph.D - A heated and sheltered from the weather garage at that.
"They were temporarily relocated to the Thurgood Marshall Judicial Center garage that has heat and restroom facilities," the statement said."

Again overblown. Dramatic. And this decision was between Capitol police and Guard leaders. Not anyone in Congress.

It's so funny to see these older vets be like "Ugh what a travesty" but in any other situation call this generation snowflakes or "woke" on a consistent basis for anything else.

GySgt (Join to see) - Especially since this one is a sheltered and heated facility with access to restrooms. A parking garage with restrooms who would have thought?

SSG Robert Webster - Right? Apparently there are soldiers allegedly saying there was one bathroom and one outlet...still. That's not bad for just taking breaks between shifts.

SFC (Join to see) - that was where they slept and were supposed to clean up and eat etc. When you are in the field you have options, you can dig a hole, pee wh were ever etc. If you smell like an NFL locker room nobody cares. I think hanging around and guarding the Capital is not the same.

LTC David Brown - The parking garage is in the basement of the Thurgood Marshall Federal Judiciary Building. This facility is fully enclosed. And if I am understanding correctly there is tunnel access from there to the US Capitol building and I am pretty sure that they have access to more than one bathroom regardless of what the media and others state.
