I have no sympathy for the businesses - even I knew that the Army was going to build on post to house all the new people. It's what the Army does, and always has done, plus it was reported in this very paper years ago. The only organizations that said to "build, build, build" were the local businesses themselves. Now they realize they made some bad decisions, aren't going to make huge profits off the military/taxpayers, and are trying to make the Army a scapegoat. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you.
