“Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service,” one Guard member told Politico. “Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed.”

Break Area for Thousands of Guard Troops Abruptly Moved from Capitol to Garage with Single Restroom

21 Jan 2021 – Military.com | By Matthew Cox

U.S. Capitol Police abruptly relocated the break area for thousands of National Guard members providing security in Washington, D.C. off Capitol grounds today and into a crowded garage with limited restroom facilities, prompting an outcry from some troops.

Roughly 26,000 Guard members were rushed into D.C. to support federal law enforcement for Wednesday’s inauguration of President Joe Biden after a violent riot on Jan. 6 led to a breach of the Capitol.

A week ago, Guard troops were photographed resting on the floors of the Capitol while on breaks during 12-hour guard-duty shifts.

Politico reported that one day after the uneventful inauguration ceremony, Guard members were told to take their breaks in a parking garage “without internet reception, with just one electrical outlet, and one bathroom with two stalls for 5,000 troops.”

“Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service,” one Guard member told Politico. “Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed.”

The news comes after the Guard announced today that 15,000 Guard members will be rapidly leaving D.C. to return to their home states over the next 10 days.

Two soldiers were concerned about being in the tight space with just one restroom during the COVID-19 pandemic, and told Politico that “at least 100 Guard members had tested positive” for the virus.
