On June, 2016, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputies met a homeless veteran while on road patrol. He was sitting near the intersection with a sign on his wheelchair stating Air Force Veteran.
Mr. J stated that he lived in a shed and was injured so severely that he could no longer control his bodily functions, and could barely walk.
He had been wearing the same clothes for several months and did not eat well.
The officers wondered what happened to his family and how they could get him out of this situation.
The video story is the culmination of two years of work to reunite a homeless veteran with his family.
