Retired Disabled Marine Housing Assistance

Honored, Retired, Disabled Marine suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and numerous health issues, related directly and indirectly to this, as well as physical injuries while on duty, has lost his house due to foreclosure.

He was unable to work as a result of these medical and psychological issues. He is currently living on the streets of San Antonio, Texas. He selflessly served in Beirut, surviving the horrific bombing in 1983, Iraq and Somalia. Additionally he was deployed on many classified missions as part of the elite Marine Recon unit.

As a friend, I am attempting to support him in continuing to fight his battle to survive and continue as a positive, productive member of his community. He is one of the most generous people I've known, both financially and through directly touching others through his kind heart.

The money I am planning to raise is SPECIFICALLY for providing him with a studio apartment. His problem is that he makes "too much" with his pension and disability to qualify for VA and State/Federal programs, BUT, unfortunately NOT enough to qualify him to rent an apartment. My hope is that we can raise enough money for First and Last month rent, Security Deposit and as many months pre-paid as possible. Ideally, a full year of rent would be desireable to give him a chance to focus on finding a job and taking care of his health.

Please consider giving any amount you feel comfortable with...or purely prayer support if you are not in a position to donate. Thank you very much!
