Obama Takes $100 Million Vacation – Closes Military Swimming Pools

Lounge chairs are piled in high stacks and what little water was visible in the swimming pool on a recent visit appeared a dark shade of green.

Elsewhere at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story, a water park that’s highly popular with the children of service members is open one less day a week this summer.

“Everybody’s a little bit emotional,” said Michael Martin, a spokesman for Joint Base Langley-Eustis in Virginia. “People are a little upset … These decisions are tough. They really are. But in the budgetary climate we’re working in, these are the types of decisions we have to make. It’s unfortunate.
