military mortgage help

10 posts in this topic

Ok Sen,. Coleman and others have introduced a bill to help home coming veterans with there mortgage and financial woe's. Bush expected to sign into law.

It use to be three months given to military personnel, coming home from war or extended service, to straighten out financial problems. The bill extends the three months to nine months.

Yes this is very good but I feel this is still to short.

IMO Length of time should be at least the time of all tours combined.

Why does this Governent not take of our millitry personell like they should. Its been this way after every war.

[PoorWordUsage], if the country can spend 400 billion to bail out homeowners.. we should just pay off the vets bills... that would be money better spent.

Yep...they seem to take care of loafers and people who won't work better than the ones who put their lives on the line to protect the rest of us. Pretty sad if you ask me.

That would be unfair to the Military persons that work hard to pay their bills on time as opposed to ones that dont. When I was in the military I seen people who were so financially irresponsible that they'd go on 3 month TDYs and file bankruptcy when they got back home.

But yeah, no question, giving more people time to pay after a long deployment is common sense...especially since so many people are being extended and goign back multiple times.

I wouldn't mind seeing it as long as they were on their tour. I agree with Sled, don't know if it would be fair to ones that kept up on bills. I would love to see a ton more money go to these men and women as well as the civil service workers than go to the scum that won't work.

I don't think we are talking a bail out here, but rather some relief from the creditors until they get back into their normal jobs and back the groove here. I am sure many of the Guard and Reserve folks that have got sent over seas have taken a cut in pay from their normal jobs to do so and gotten behind financially and need some time to get things back in order. Not to mention getting back into the mentality of taking care of things that have been taken care of for them during their tour of duty.

If the goverment wants to play war, then let the goverment make up the lost wages for those who are willing to give their life and let their family suffer.

I work for a great organization in that aspect. They make up the difference in what the service didn't pay of the salary that employee was earning. I wish they all did that.

    • Holiday Bowl isn't too shabby. I wonder if Tracy Claeys is nervous? Last time the gophers played a Mike Leach led team, it cost their coach his job 
    • I'm not in the market for a new auger since purchasing an Ion, but I see FF has a Redback electric auger in their ad. This auger looks similar to the Ion for significantly less money. Does anyone have experience with this auger? Just wanted to bring it up as a possible alternative to those who might be in the  market for an electric. As a side note, I am very happy with the Ion.
    • MLR, how heavy is your house?   After reading your experience I was getting worried. Earlier this summer I swapped out my handles with bolts and gave them a brief trial with my old cordless Dewalt. It was pretty much maxed out and likely not the ticket. Just purchased the Dewalt kit DCK283D2 that is 40% off at FF in hopes it might work. I figured the impact driver would work but didn't really want to be hammering on the gear set. Tried out the drill after work today on low speed and it raises my house easily. My house weighs approximately 3000#. No more hand cranking for me.   Wanted to get the Milwaukee Fuel but couldn't see spending $275 for one drill. This kit is $167 for drill and driver with 2 batteries and charger.
