    Sorry for last post.. I meant to say, this is not for vietnam vets? been trying to get a home since vietnam .. no luck .. credit is poor, because of medical bills. The V.A. have been slow about paying Medical Bills.. Bills attach to credit, no chance for Home ....

    Another name for bank owned homes are foreclosed homes. Tim Mcgraw isn't giving them away, the banks can't sell them and the banks are giving them away. At least they are not burning down like they are in Detroit.

    Mr. Bullock, I am in the Hampton Roads area of Virgnina. the Habitat orginization has kicked off a new program "Habitat for Heros" a program specifically focused on Veterans. What ever region you are in, I suggest reaching out to them. I have been a volunteer for seven years now and believe in the program.

    Hey, just wanted to let you know that The Home Depot has a program to help people especially vets. Go to your local Home Depot, talk to a manager and ask about Team Depot. Associates from the store will go out and help out in any way they can.

    Good afternoon and good morning have just retired; went through a disgusting divorce and still going back and forth in court with the ex. I have retired from Fort Benning, GA and i am struggling with various medical and psychological issues. I have a family and have the most loving wife that should be awarded for her service as a military wife. can you send me an email on how could i apply for a more deserving home than living in a trailer of wear and tare.
