Update to the Fort Bragg power down exercise:  "You can claim damages if the Fort Bragg power outage ruined your stuff"

https://www.armytimes.com/news/your-arm ... %20Roundup
  • A week after a cyber attack exercise shut down electricity on almost all of the Army’s most populated installation, leadership is offering soldiers and their families a chance to recoup their costs.
  • Fort Bragg, N.C., residents can file a claim with the post’s judge advocate general, according to a Thursday Facebook post.
  • “Following the exercise, we’ve received a number of inquiries about claims for food that spoiled as a result of the power outage,” the statement said.
