What happens to many veterans and their families on any other given day in this country? Many veterans are homeless, and many are victims of foreclosure fraud, having lost their homes or engaged in the fight to prevent fraudulent foreclosure by the big banks. According to a report last year, over 700 foreclosures were conducted against active-duty service members by Bank of America, Wells Fargo, JPMorgan Chase and Citigroup.
But it gets worse, because not only are the veterans themselves at risk: so, too, are their widows.
Brenda Reed is a Vietnam War widow. Her husband, Eddie, was killed in action in 1968 while serving as a company commander in the U.S. Army’s 9th Infantry Division in the Mekong Delta. Eddie gave his life while helping to save the lives of 130 other men. He earned two Purple Hearts, a Silver Star, a Bronze Star and other commendations and medals honoring his bravery and his life.
