The letter, delivered Monday, comes after Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris publicly raised concerns after a Nov. 1 Reuters article that cited problems ranging from mice and cockroach infestations to water leaks, mold blooms, and lead-based paint.
Lincoln CEO Tim Byrne and President Jarl Bliss wrote that there were errors and omissions in the article but vowed to work with the Marine Corps and families involved to address any problems.
“We write to assure you that we take the concerns raised by service members in the Nov. 1 Reuters article very seriously despite the story’s significant factual errors and omissions,” the two wrote.
They said Lincoln personnel have been working with many of the families mentioned in the article to address concerns.
