TULSA, Okla. - Monday on the KRMG Afternoon News with Dick Loftin, we told you about the Navy Seal that killed Osama bin Laden feeling abandoned by the military.
KRMG has discovered that veterans in Tulsa are facing some of the same struggles.
Lieutenant Colonel Larry Henderson is only receiving half the retirement pay he earned during his 32 years of service in the Army.
He is currently receiving $2000 per month instead of the $4000 he earned.
That forced Henderson into some drastic measures.
Henderson says, "I refinanced my house just two weeks ago because of this situation so I could lower the monthly payment on my house."
Henderson tells KRMG that he also has issues with the VA when trying to get treatment for injuries he suffered while in the service.
Henderson says has submitted the same paperwork to the VA every month since retiring last August.
Henderson says he's not alone.
Henderson says, "I'm not the only one that's in this situation so I just try to take it to God and I hope that some day this will be resolved.
"I appreciate any of your (KRMG's) listeners that are looking at my story," says Henderson. "I hope they realize that there are many other veterans that need their prayers and support."
