Once homeless: Las Vegas was one of the stops on our 2011 “no homeless veterans in America,” bicycle trek. It was through this journey we met Patrick. When speaking with him in this very same environment seen in this picture to the left, he asked V.H.P. if we could please help find his wife who he had not seen in over 10 years. You can imagine our shock and we quickly went to work. The only known info was his wife was a school teacher, in Hawaii. After this experience, we now know why Las Vegas is called “sin city.” this man and many like him, lived in an empty field with zero shade a few blocks away from the Las Vegas strip. No human should ever live in these conditions, period!
Where he is now: This my friends is Patrick today. he is re-joined with his wife and son who he had not seen in over 10 years. Vet Hunter Alfred Lugo (out of his own pocket) flew with Patrick to Hawaii to ensure the connection went smoothly and from the picture, smooth it did.
The interesting part of this story is that through our investigation, we learned that the police department had him listed as deceased. His wife never lost hope and always kept a picture of Patrick on her desk and would tell her students who he was. She would pray every night for him. V.H.P. believes that what we do is from a higher calling because the miracles that we perform with human lives can only come from him! a big HOOAH!
