Last night, Army Veteran Richard Leo was sleeping under a bridge.
Tonight, he has a roof over his head. It’s all thanks to operation buildup.
” Kind of felt like, a little embarrassed to luck out like this. I wasn’t expecting this. It’s kind of amazing,” said Leo.
Operation buildup is a non-profit made up of veterans who help veterans.
“This mission feels amazing. How much better does it get than offering a veteran in difficult circumstances everything he needs to build a better life?,” said the CEO of Operation Buildup, Justin Cogswell.
The apartment for Richard Leo comes with six months rent, paid in full.
