This person has left the following thank you note:

I am very grateful that you took out the time to assist me and my family. Transitioning out of the military is not easy when it comes to trying to find supplemental income. Your help will enable me to at least get a foot hold in getting financially back on the right track. I have prayed daily that God would answer my prayers throughout these trying times. With God and your help you have made this all possible and I am very thankful. My family will make it through the months to come. I hope God blesses each and every one of you and your families who assisted mine in a time of need. Thank you!

Disabled Veteran Needs Mortgage Help After Waiting on Benefits to Kick In

My Story:

I am a single father who recently medically retired from the Armed Forces. I have a 3 year old son who I have to support. He is very loving and I am currently trying to teach him colors, numbers, as well as alphabet recognition. I am now in search of work after becoming medically retired.

I was a commissioned officer on active duty for some years. My benefits provide a way to pay my monthly bills but the recent separation from the military caused a gap in my income. I have no savings set up to help me out during this time. I am asking for Modest Needs to assist me in paying my mortgage for one month. I'm afraid that if I do not receive assistance I will dig myself deeper in debt with my mortgage along with other bills.

This help would allow me to gain a foothold on bills for the upcoming month. With my VA money now coming in monthly I will be able to sustain everything going forward. This would positively impact my 3 year old son and I in allowing me to maintain the household I have worked hard for to support us both. Thank you so much for any assistance you can provide.
