Sam Reilly is a National Guard Iraqi war veteran who could not stay caught up on his house payments. He says he was waiting for a VA settlement check that, according to him, was mired in red tape.

Reilly asked for help from Congresswoman Nancy Boyda, the National Guard and 13 News.

He says Boyda called the VA and told them life could be very uncomfortable if there wasn't movement on this -- and now there has been.

Reilly said he has received his settlement, and it is the start of a new life for him, his pregnant wife and their young child.

He will now be stationed in Kentucky, where his father lives and where he has some family that can help him out. He is sorry to lose his home, but is ready for a new beginning, and is not bitter.
