Let them Build the Vet His Home

A terrible story from Augusta, Georgia.  An Army vet seriously injured in Afghanistan comes home to America.  An awesome group called Homes for Our Troops offers to build a home for that vet, Sgt Sean Gittens and his family.  The subdivision where this home is to be built has a covenant that requires that the home be at least 2700 square feet.  The builder agrees.  Everything looks like it's a go.  At the last minute, the subdivision's Architectural Review Board pulls it's approval.  The Board says it won't fit in with the 5000 square foot homes in the area.


Here is an article on the controversy.
