Soldier's Dad Fights Foreclosure


WASHINGTON -- In August, Tim Collette's son Aaron will spend 15 days on leave from Iraq.

Aaron is 20 years old, and he's been in the Army for about a year and a half. A few weeks ago, his squad was hit with an improvised explosive device. Everybody survived, but it frightened both the soldier and his family. The Army told Aaron he could go anywhere he wanted. And of all the places in the world he could visit, Aaron wants to go home.

But Aaron might not have a home to come home to. Collette has been defending his house from foreclosure since 2008. It's currently scheduled to be auctioned off on June 20.

"I just want him to come home and know he can be safe for 15 days," Collette told HuffPost. "I don't want him thinking about coming home and having it not be there."
