Samuel Reilly was at work Wednesday when he got a call from his pregnant wife, who told him the sheriff's office had been by, and they were being evicted at 4:00 that afternoon. This was at 1:00 pm.

Reilly knew his house had been sold, but believed the mortgage company would work with him if he received a settlement the VA owed him.

He injured his shoulder while in Iraq, and had surgery on it that kept him out of work for several months. He says the Wichita VA has been dragging its feet when it comes to paying him. He even contacted Nancy Boyda's office to help, but it has yet to produce results.

So he packed up all he could, and watched as his home was locked up, while his family was left with no home.

They are currently staying with family members.

A call to the mortgage company's attorney was not returned Wednesday.
