His back was severely injured in an Army training exercise in 1983. With Mollie’s help, he had his previous VA disability ratings significantly increased and received a permanent, 100-percent disability rating because he can no longer work.

“He’s very happy,” Mollie said. “His monthly income will rise from $750 a month to almost $2,900 a month for the rest of his life.  Besides finding a place to live, he hopes to use this money to publish a book that he has written.”
