Warfighters engaged in 'logistics, engineering' for health workers
WASHINGTON – As 1,400 U.S. soldiers prepare to head to Liberia this month, critics are still wondering why President Obama is using his valuable, highly trained warfighters to provide mostly logistical and engineering support for health workers trying to stop the spread of Ebola.

According to Department of Defense officials, the Pentagon is planning to spend at least $1 billion on the effort and send a total of 3,000 military personnel to the center of the unprecedented outbreak.

Defense Department spokesman John Kirby said the troops will set up the infrastructure for an operation that will be run by the State Department’s U.S. Agency for International Development, or USAID.

Kirby made clear at a Sept. 19 press conference that the effort will not include U.S. military personnel treating Ebola patients. Instead, their function will be in support of other health-care workers who are the experts in the Ebola treatment process.
