100% Disabled Navy Veteran Seeks Government Housing Grant Money

by Jeffrey Roche
(Towson, MD, USA)

I am a 100% Disabled US Navy Veteran who was injured while on active duty. To date I have had over 70 operations and procedures.

I live each day with an overwhelming chronic pain problem that requires some strong meds to make my life bearable.

In 2007 I was hospitalized on and off from July 31st till December 5th. I developed a huge seroma at the surgical site from which 2+ liters were drained out every 3 or 4 days.

This caused me financial hardship and I lost my home to foreclosure in late 2009. I had nowhere to go and no family left to help me.

My little sister died in 1984 at only 23 years old. That was the beginning of the end for my Mom.

She passed New Year's Eve 1995. She missed my sister terribly. My Dad, a Marine Corps Veteran, died December 19, 2008 of terminal lung cancer.

I am all alone now. I never married. I planned a career in the Navy. Then I got hurt.

I am now staying in Towson, MD. I do not really know many people here and need to return to the Venice Florida area. At least there I have friends who can help me and keep me company.

I spend my days alone here pretty much. I'm not really feeling well either.

If I could get help with moving expenses and help with the deposits on a rental home my life would be a lot happier.

The Towson area is very expensive and I'm having a hard time here. Please help me.
