Bobby Hull has bravely served his country as a US Marine and despite his sacrifice he and his family are facing eviction this winter.
He first began living in his South Minneapolis home when his mother bought it in 1968. The title was later transferred to him, and he made timely payments on the house for decades while his nine brothers and sisters and innumerable extended family used the home as a stable transition point as they worked through the economic downturn.
Some recent health problems have caused him to fall behind in his payments. Meanwhile, Bank of America refused to provide Bobby with a reasonable loan modification. US Bank then purchased the home at the Sheriff's sale and it is their responsibility to work with Bobby to keep him and his family in their home.
Bobby is now being supported by Occupy Minnesota. Bobby was surprised to learn that occupiers were organizing to help him and others in his position. “Thank God this is happening. I’ve read the Constitution and I know that it’s supposed to be ‘We the people’", Bobby said. "We're supposed to unite, that's what our forefathers did. You've watch my back, I've got yours... I’ve served my time in Vietnam and I’m not afraid to fight again.”
If we do nothing he and his family are facing a February eviction, in the dead of winter, with nowhere to go. Please join Bobby Hull in asking US Bank to allow his family to stay in their home and to agree to a loan modification.
