US Soldiers to spend Thanksgiving in Ebola isolation
JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD, Wash. A group of military service members returning to Joint Base Lewis-McChord from Africa will spend Thanksgiving in isolation while the Army monitors their health for signs of Ebola.

The group arriving Tuesday evening includes 15 service members and one Defense Department civilian who built facilities in Liberia to fight the fatal disease, the Army said.

They were not exposed to Ebola-infected patients and the risk that they picked up the fatal disease is very minimal, said I Corps Maj. Mary Ricks. Because they have no symptoms, the isolation is called controlled monitoring rather than quarantine, Ricks said Tuesday.

They'll have their temperature taken twice a day during their stay, which won't be a full 21 days because they've already spent some time in Germany.

Lewis-McChord is not their home base. They come from all over the country and one is stationed overseas, Ricks said.

The base near Tacoma is one of five around the country set up for Ebola monitoring. The first troops returning from the Ebola mission in Africa went to Joint Base Langley-Eustis in Virginia earlier this month, Ricks said.

This is the first group for Lewis-McChord, which has room for two groups of 50 for a total of 100. That could go up to 1,000 if necessary, Ricks said. [link to news.yahoo.com]

That sucks... worse if they spend Thanksgiving bleeding out every orifice, let's hope no-one caught it.

Re: US Soldiers to spend Thanksgiving in Ebola isolation
"controlled monitoring" that sounds much more pleasant then quarantine or isolation.

How nice of them to rename it
I'm only human, it's my biggest flaw.

We must all realize a sink a chair and a pillow are all luxuries of home and a soldiers helmet takes the place of all three.

I really don't understand why Obama sent troops in the first place. Why put the entire country at risk, or even on soldier.

Let the CDC and local authorities deal with it. Don't give it any options to hitch a ride and come back home.

My guess is they can't even hire people to do the job of setting up the equipment. So to just give it to them with no contractors willing to set it up is pointless.

Now we burry the news on this with "talking point" terms designed to pass under the radar. With everything else going on it works.
