I'm a disabled vet from Texas and am in dire need of a work truck. I have three children

I'm a disabled vet from Texas and am in dire need of a work truck. I have three children whom I was rewarded custody of last year bc their Mom was doing drugs while I was deployed. Now that I'm home I want to give them the best life I can but I still have so many lawyers bills to pay and rent but doing so is leaving me no funds for a vehicle. I'm down to building swing sets in my barn to help pay the bills. I'm not asking for anything for free, just a chance to pay little by little till I can pay you the full price you're wanting for a sound work truck. Also it would help tremendously if anyone had a laptop so I could have more success in my job searches. Hard enough to find an ok paying job for the disabled, much harder without Internet, having to go to library when I can.. Thank you and God bless you all.

i'm a vet of thirteen years as well as a war vet of OIF 2004. I'm married with three kids

i'm a vet of thirteen years as well as a war vet of OIF 2004. I'm married with three kids and my wife is a recovering cancer patient and a veteran as well. Both of my knees are messed up, wear two knee braces and get around on a cane. Our finances are shot and can barely pay our bills. I have no income coming in and trying to find something to do is so frustrating and heartbreaking to see my kids look up to me but dad is struggling to provide. My water is due to cut-off friday cause i can't pay 200 dollars to keep it on and if so, gotta pay full bill to get it back on which is 311 dollars. Just tired of being tired of struggling so much. Is there any good angels out there that are willing to help a veteran and his family in their time of need?

Im 24, a homeless veteran with a wife and a 2 year old daughter trying to get by. I lost my mother 2 days before arriving home from seperating from the Navy. Since then weve been homeless with no job and no money. Looking for a job has been difficult, but im hopeful something good will happen soon. Untill then ive been trying everything to make it day by day and put food and a roof over my daughters head. When you have nothing, something so little can help out so much. I hope I can get a little help untill we can get back on our feet. If anyone can help us we would appreciate anything no matter how small it is.

Any small donatiom can help so much

Looking for help with Christmas items and gifts for 3 children. I'm a disabled veteran. I just went through a divorce so money for Christmas is short. I did not end up with any of the Christmas decorations and would like to make my house a Merry Christmas for my children. I have split custody so my home is their home too. Anything will help. Let me know. Thank you and merry early Christmas.

My name is Leonard Francesconi in Hedgesville, WV. I served in the US Navy as a submariner

My name is Leonard Francesconi in Hedgesville, WV. I served in the US Navy as a submariner for over 10 years. I have several service connected disabilities total rating at 40%. Recently my compensation pay has been garnished to payback my severance pay in 2005. I was honorably discharged in April 2005 under RE-3B family separation. I became a single father of 3 children all under the age of 3 (twins and a baby). Because I didn’t complete my enlistment contract all the bonus money I received had to be paid back. My severance pay, leave pay, one month’s base pay, and half of my tax return the following year was garnished. My orders were to transfer to a civilian in 10 days. 10 days to get my affairs in order and become a civilian. I lost my home, home goods, vehicle, and more. I had to pay greater than $26,000.00 dollars and if it wasn’t for my parents, my children and I would be homeless. Now, as of 6 August 2013, my 40% compensation is being garnished to pay a severance pay I never received. I do not have a job currently but it is in the process. I graduated from college obtaining my BA but that was 5 months ago so I have had no income and now I am behind 2 months’ rent and 4 months electric bill. My children and I are about to be homeless again and everything lost. I don’t know where to go or what to do to prevent this. My wife left me and the kids and the Navy kicked me out and severely damaging my credit and lost everything and now it haunts me again. I am in physical pain every day and I am far from lazy. It is not fair and I need something to happen soon. I do start employment next week but I am too far behind. Please, is there anyone that can help? I have asked many sources (VA, charities, and various more) to aid in my time of need.
Please help,
Leonard Francesconi

My husband and I are both veterans. We just moved to Northern Florida for my husband's new job. We have three elementary aged children. My husband just started his new job, we have been in Florida only a month! Today, our mini van had the transmition go out on the highway. It is our only car and since it is the vehicle that my husband uses to drive while doing his courier work, we really need it!! I just paid all the savings we had to move here, and I am completely tapped out at this point. I need to get this van fixed or the domino effect is really going to start happening! I just signed up to start school when we moved here. I am supposed to start on 3/25/13. Without a car, my husband can't go do his job and I can't go to school. I also can't take my son to his t-ball games (trivial, I know, but it is a BIG deal to him! He is only 6 and that is his life!). I don't have family to ask, my mother passed away in 2006 and my father has never been in my life. My husband's family doesn't have the means to help us either. If you can offer any support for this situation, I would greatly appreciate it!!
