Update to Stealing from Veterans, posted on March 23rd, 2012

This is an update about Fred.
We have given up trying to help Fred. He has surrendered his freedom to the conservator Cythia Thornberry and the social worker Karen Fugi.

Whether or not its true, Fred is reporting that the conservator applied for a pension for him from General Motors and was awarded a large sum of money totaling over 100k. Fred was all excited that he had that money until we pointed out to him that unless his social worker and conservator approved of it, he would not be able to even touch one dime of it.. so in effect, it was not his money to use as he saw fit.

Fred bought a used power wheel chair from another member who got a new one. The home will not let him have it until he leaves here, so he reports.

Fred continues to drink his 5th of RUM every day.. that is why they take away his power chair. He never ran into anyone, cussed any one out or anything like that.. he just becomes loud and demands to be at the center of attention when he gets drunk.. which can be as early as 9am.

So those of us who tried to help the guy, have given up.

  1. It's sad when you have to turn your back on a comrade but maybe this will be a wake up call for Fred!
