In Stuart, Florida, WPTV-TV Channel 5 reports:
- A local veteran is desperate for help after being put out of his home. He says the home he was renting went into foreclosure and he was told it was okay for him to stay there until everything was worked out. But on Thursday he was handed an eviction notice and watched as movers moved all his belongings into the street.
- It's tears of frustration and desperation from 62-year-old Vietnam Veteran Ramsey Harris. "I cry like a baby and I'm a about to burst into tears right now," said Harris. He hides his face as he is overwhelmed with emotion not knowing where he will go or do next. "It's kind of tough... it's just not right," Harris said.
- Harris says he moved to Stuart from Maryland after he was told he could receive better medical care at the VA hospitals in South Florida. "They're going to fuse my back and hope that solves some of the pain and problems that I have," said Harris.
- Neighbors are still in disbelief. "I was surprised at sort of the brutality of it the throwing a person's possessions on the street and leaving him to his own devices," said one neighbor. [...] And many of his belongings are still out on the street. He says some of the items have been taken by people thinking it's just junk.
