Local Veteran Aided by Move to HUD Housing

A local veteran received assistance from the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association (CVMA) that resulted in new housing.
 
Michael King, a veteran of the U.S. Army, reportedly fell on hard times, became homeless, and was sleeping at his job site in secret until his ticket from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development was approved, and an apartment became available for him.
 
The CVMA issued a news release about the matter with a dateline of Erlanger but did not indicate exactly where King was from or would live.
 
According to the release, King, heard about CVMA at a food pantry and made a call.
 
The CVMA, made up of veterans from the Vietnam War to wars of today, pulled together to pay his overdue storage fee where all of his personal possessions were kept in jeopardy of being auctioned. Then, they helped him look for a better job.
 
Four trucks were used to make the move.
 
“Mr. King was overwhelmed with the quick response and the number of veterans that pulled together on short notice to move him into his new living quarters, as well as our efforts to help him find a new job,” said Dennis Glover, CVMA commander.
