When Gatz returned home inspectors discovered poisonous mold in his family's home of 12 years. Gatz moved his family into a small apartment.

After hearing his story the Service For Peace stepped in to help along with Operation Helping Heroes, the National VFW and dozens of volunteers.

After weeks of home renovations Gatz home is finally ready for inspection. If the inspection goes Gatz could move his family back into their home before November.
