An injured Marine’s family say they may be facing foreclosure after their homeowners association denied their application to use a program designed for wounded warriors.
Sgt. Keith McEwen, 29, and his wife Lindsay received news that they were approved for the Homeowners Assistance Program (HAP) — which provides monetary relief to wounded, ill or injured service members by purchasing their home — after unsuccessfully trying to sell their home for nine months. McEwen is medically retiring from the Marine Corps because of injuries sustained while deployed on his third tour to Afghanistan and found out about the program while attached to the Wounded Warrior Battalion.
