Disabled USMC Veteran needs assistance!!

Disabled United States Marine Corps Veteran Michael T. lives in Greenville, Illinois and needs his battle buddies and other patriots to bring in some reinforcements. We're looking to find assistance with getting sufficient housing for his family and financial assistance until the situation can be brought to a more permanent solution. 100% of funds raised through this effort will go directly to Michael and his Family to help bridge the gap with their living expenses until a better situation is achieved.


Here's his situation:

Even though he's disabled and living on less than $1,000 a month, he is trying to help provide for large combined family group (shows his military protective and leadership instincts are alive and well!). The house in which they currently reside has been sold out from under them by the landlord and they now need a new place to live (will consider temporary situations, but potentially permanent is ideal). The combined family consists of Michael, his wife and daughter, his mother-in-law, his sister-in-law and her new baby.

Michael has filed a disability claim with the VA but is still waiting on results. He's been pursuing this for the last two years and the VA has told him the paperwork was "lost" ... but somehow it's been "lost" for TWO YEARS?!? If the VA can't / won't take care of our brother, let's show him what WE can and will do for our comrades! Because of the long-term fight with the VA and the financial pinch is has placed on them, Michael and his family's credit is unfortunately not sufficient to qualify for the type of loans they would need to get a place to live for their family.

He and his family are, from necessity, relying on foodstamps and his state disability. The combined monthly income of the six-person family, with two adults receiving disability and the govt. support his daughter receives, is a combined total of less than $1,900. As you can clearly see, this is a VERY TOUGH situation for anyone, let alone a brother fighting to overcome physical limitations.

(Michael's service was verified via DD214 and his situation via a personal contact with whom we're associated.)
