Junior Sailors Scrambling for a Place to Live After the Navy Shutters Its Barracks at Key West


Recommended Posts

😲 I can't believe something like this is happening...

Junior sailors stationed at Naval Air Station Key West, Florida, are struggling to find homes after the closure of two of the base's barracks sent about 60 service members looking for alternative places to stay. It's an incredibly expensive housing market, including nearly $4,000-a-month trailers the Navy had built to market for "leisure travel."

In an email to Military.com, base spokeswoman Danette Baso Silvers said that the base decided to shutter the housing for single, junior sailors "to conduct much needed repairs and renovations." According to the base website, the pair of buildings could house about 100 sailors.
