After being diagnosed with cancer, Army Veteran Richard Kuri found himself facing a mountain of medical bills. The former field artillery battery executive with the 82nd Airborne filed for bankruptcy protection, seeking a fresh financial start.
But that bankruptcy also took a toll on his credit. Richard worked with the Lighthouse Program at Veterans United to improve his financial profile. Two years after his bankruptcy discharge, Richard purchased his dream home, just a few blocks from the shores of Lake Michigan.
