FORT LEE, Va. (Oct. 13, 2020) — The Army’s second-highest-ranking civilian spent a good part of his day here Oct. 7 touring training facilities, conversing with troops and spotlighting efforts to improve privatized military family housing.

Defense Ministry Harms Army Morale by Siding with Shirker – The Chosun Ilbo (English Edition): Daily News from Korea

Revelations of special treatment received by Justice Minister Choo Mi-ae’s son during his mandatory military service and the Defense Ministry’s attempts to shield him from scrutiny are damaging troop morale and discipline. Defense Minister Jeong Kyeong-doo told lawmakers on Wednesday, “It’s true that documents have not been preserved at the unit, but no regulations were violated so there are no problems” with the justice minister’s son taking nearly a month’s sick leave after minor knee surgery.

Schreiber Corp. in Warren rebuilt the roof on Mack I for the general assembly shop and Toledo-based Fred Christen & Sons Co. did roofing work on Mack II for the body shop.

“We did that so that enough craft labor and craft supervision was available to complete the job,” Haller said.

Skilled trade labor unions were given monthly projections of man-hours by trade to help union leaders plan and organize labor in a “superheated” construction labor market, Haller said.

The coronavirus shutdown in the spring required additional shifts and workers, particularly millwrights for the assembly
