I asked this on Facebook.

'So let me get this straight.
We are sending troops to West Africa to provide humanitarian aid for the Ebola epidemic.
When these troops come back to the US, they will have to go through a 21 day quarantine, but foreigners coming FROM west Africa do NOT have to go through this quarantine.
How can this possibly sound RIGHT to ANYONE?'

This isn't a stupid question. It's not a dumb question. It IS an honest & fair question.

Why would this be forced on our men & women in uniform, but not someone WITHOUT the training (that I sincerely hope our troops will get) and equipment that can keep them safe?

Honestly WHY?
