It often takes a village to give someone a new lease on life. This is the story of how Mission Viejo Police Services, Mercy House, City staff, a local church and others band together to help a United States veteran find a home.  This is the story of 85-year-old Vern – who bravely served our country for nearly two decades – 1960 to 1987 – and had been living in his 1970 VW van for the last 10 years.  Vern served in the Navy, National Guard and Army Reserve. He enlisted in the Army, earned the rank of Sergeant First Class and fought in the Vietnam War.
