An unnamed veteran fell behind on his mortgage payments when his injuries and PTSD left him reclusive and struggling to deal with civilian life. The bank who foreclosed on the vet’s property literally kicked him out on the street, throwing his most precious belongings to the curb. Neighbors were stunned when they saw the man’s Purple Heart and American flag strewn about as if they meant nothing at all.

Wounded American Warrior stated:

This is a disgrace that any bank would throw a veteran out on the streets like this, especially a wounded warrior. I understand rules are rules however, the bank should have worked with this man to have it done in a proper manner. This hero gave a leg in combat for Americans and this is the repayment he gets? That bank should have bought the home for him!

We are losing respect for our veteran community fast, and we need to turn this around. After all if it weren’t for our veterans we wouldn’t have the freedom we have today.

Neighbors have started a fund for the veteran, who lost his leg in Afghanistan. He hopes to move to Mississippi, where the rest of his family lives, with the money the good samaritans have raised.
