Homeless Veterans trying to raise $10.00 for food Thank you and God bless Happy Holidays”
is what reads on the sign from Lee. After suffering from the casualties of war in Kandahar he is struggling with ptsd and an overactive mind of the visuals of what war has done to him.
He along with a few others on a night mission made entry into a home where who they were after later found out wasn’t there. He said they were met with a middle aged female fighter who picked up an AK-47 and pointed it at them. He along with other soldiers returned fire ultimately ending the female fighters life and later found out a child in the next room ended up being a casualty of war. Lee explained this has stuck in his head for years causing his life to spiral into what it is now, homeless.
After having many traumatic stories he now lives on the streets of NYC where this is his norm.
