Opinion of the Editor 'Obama in the White House Blog'
In a report by the 'Financial Times', the reality of the times appears ever so strongly in the display below that shows what happens when you go away to war but still owe your mortgage company/bank money on your home. If you happened to be the only moneymaker in the home, or the main moneymaker but had to go to war, you may have turned into a statistic of a homeowner that lost his/her home while at war fighting for your country. Notice at the top of the list is Bank of America, followed by Wells Fargo, then CitiBank. Over 4,500 home foreclosures with just those banks considered.
What happened with protecting our soldiers who were out fighting a war on a foreign land who didn't have a viable way to protect their home. With recent withdrawals from Iraq and Afghanistan, soldiers are coming home without a job to come home to, nor a home to live in in an attempt to pickup their lives as a result of a war that our previous President George W. Bush started.
Thank you very much, the likes of Bank of America, Wells Fargo, CitiBank, OneWest Bank, HSBC, USBankcorp, AuroraBank, Metlife, Soverign, and EverBank, for taking care of the families of the soldiers fighting a war in a foreign land.
