She then proceeds to tell me about how she had to have emergency gall bladder surgery 6 months ago, and when she got out of the hospital, her position was replaced, and now she is unemployed.
She called her ex husband and asked for help, but he said no.
A couple of days later, she tells the kids they have to move to Florida, because she is behind on the rent as well.
We invited them over for dinner, and they are telling me how they need to move, etc, and she has no options and no car. The kids tell me how good dinner is, and that they haven't eaten meat in a while. She was unable to buy groceries too. I then took her to the store and stocked her up.
So, my husband and I talked it over, and we went to the bank to get her the money she needed to get current on her rent. Then we set about a plan to get her a car. My FIL had a car that was sitting in the driveway, but not running or registered. We decided to get that running and registered to help her on her feet.
So, now, she has a car that runs, and won't get repo'd, and can catch her breath and figure out what she and her family need to do.

My step dad works for the Veterns Dept and told me about them coming in and asking for help. He helped them as much as he could. Once I learned about it, I told him that I can rent the house to them.
I would have never had all this stuff if it wasnt for the vets. My dad was a vet and passed away when I was younger. I was able to go to college the first time basically for free on a War Orphans Scholarship. I do what I can to help out and pay it back.
