Veterans rally for fellow veteran facing foreclosure

Posted: Updated:
STRATFORD -

A group of veterans came together in Stratford Sunday to show support for a fellow veteran facing foreclosure.

Veterans came from as far away as North Carolina to rally for Kim Lanham, who says she fell behind on her mortgage payments after suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Those who show showed up say they want to see federal legislation that guarantees extra time for veterans suffering from medical conditions related to their military service.

"If you're suffering from PTSD give them a chance to reconcile before you go straight into foreclosure," Lanham said. "Why would you just put a veteran out of a house that they built? I need these people to care and to know that PTSD is real."

Lanham says her case will go before a judge next week and she could end up homeless.
