It's not quite home, but soldiers returning from deployments to West Africa to help fight Ebola will be treated to video games, gym equipment, hot meals and Wi-Fi as they wait out their mandatory 21-day isolation at Fort Bragg.
The amenities are part of the fenced-in campus that about 60 soldiers, sailors and Department of Defense civilian employees will use to stay comfortable and entertained as doctors monitor their health for symptoms of Ebola and travel-related illnesses. The group, which deployed in support of Operation United Assistance, is expected to arrive at Fort Bragg on Wednesday. It will be the first group hosted by Fort Bragg.
