More than 20000 veterans, active-duty troops and reservists lost their homes last year, 2010 the highest number since 2003. USA Today
http://www.usatoday.com/.../2011-02-04-1Avetforeclosures04_ST_N.htm
In 2010, more than 20,000 active-duty veterans and reservists with government-sponsored mortgages lost their homes, a 32-percent increase from 2008 and the largest loss since 2003. The number could have been worse were it not for Veterans Administration programs that helped 66,000 military families avoid foreclosure in 2010.
Even worse, military members are often victims of foreclosure fraud. In November, federal regulators released data showing that more than 5,000 military members may have been illegally foreclosed upon by the nation’s 10 largest banks, and veterans continue to battle banks to stay in their homes on a daily basis.
