Military Family's Losing Space For RV
A military family based near Fort Riley in Kansas said they’ll have no place to live as of next week, Kansas City television station Fox 4 reported.
The Mondick Family lives in a military campground in Milford, Kan. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is forcing them to leave. Teresita Mondick says she and her three young children have made their home in a camper near Ft. Riley for about six months.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers owns the land, and as of next Thursday morning (Jan. 23), its policy says she’ll have to take her 40-foot camper and find a new place to live.
The Mondicks live in the RV while Teresita’s husband, Sgt. Jeremy Mondick, is serving a tour of duty in Afghanistan.
A spokesman with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers told FOX 4 News the campgrounds were never meant to be permanent homes, and that residents were notified months ago they’d need to leave.
“There are no available camp-spots for me to move to,” Mondick said. “If I were to stay in the area, it would be a lottery. It’s the draw of the hat. There’s no guarantees.”
