Disabled Veteran at risk of homelessness

U.S. Army Veteran Thomas C. and his wife are at risk of losing their home because the Veteran's Administration, without advance notice, decided to deduct an alleged debt from 2010, leaving Thomas and his wife with only $250 to pay rent and all their bills. Thomas has no chance to appeal this decision before the bills come due ... leaving the very real possibility that he and his wife will lose the home they just got into.

They just need help bridging the gap until Thomas' military benefits kick back in again (provided the VA doesn't deduct anything else).


The Board of Directors for ~HONOR THE SACRIFICE~ (www.honor-the-sacrifice.org and on Facebook) verified Thomas' service record and financial situation and it is as stated below.

Together WE CAN KEEP THOMAS AND HIS WIFE OFF THE STREET ... let's help this American hero!!

Here's what Thomas said ...

Rent is needed badly to save the apartment that we just got last week. Truck payment, insurance, water and sewer, electric, food for 1 month (we are diabetics), cellular phone so VA can contact me for claims and doctors appointments. Thats the majority of everything.

Please see attached documentation of the VA letter that we received Friday and without warning that payment would be reduced to $250 for entire month of June due to back drill pay. Also please see attached copy of the rent bill as we can't afford to lose the roof over our heads that we just got last week because of the VA's negligence. Unfortunately, the appeal process to get this fixed has long since past and we didn't receive any warning of this until Friday of last week. We worked nearly 8 hours with our VFW state representative who called the regional office multiple times and since the checks had already been cut and sent to the treasury, they were unable to make any adjustments to allow for an emergency appeal. Please any help at your earliest convenience is much appreciated so we don't become homeless.
