You know, I'm just going to say it. The way we treat our elderly in this country sucks. Most people fail to realize the fountain of wisdom that many of this country's senior citizens possess, the man in the video below being just one example. While mistreating anyone is wrong, when it happens to a living war hero it seems especially heinous. The living war hero that I speak of is named, Ren Bodeker.
In summary, Ren Bodeker built his home, paid for it in full and buried his late wife on the grounds. Court action for a bankruptcy filing was taken against him while he recovered from cancer. Ren was coerced into signing away his homestead rights, under fear of imprisonment. As a result, he was given 5 days to vacate his home. All of this happened while he was lying in a hospital bed. Ren left his home to fully recover and plan his next course of action. Once he felt better, Ren had enough and went back to his home, in defiance of the court order, where he still resides today. However, that may all change on Dec 5th. In the video below, Ren covers the above case, his historic jump in WW II and offers a good helping of that senior wisdom I spoke of earlier. You can see Ren provide a more detailed account of his jump into the Los Banos prison camp here
I have set-up an account on Pay Pal to help Ren's defense. Please donate below.
