Family Get Surprise Of A Lifetime From Their Soldier Son - Had No Idea He Was Saving His Military Checks For This

The Great Recession hit many families across the country hard. For example, when new soldier Jose Cordova’s was deployed to Afghanistan several years ago, his father lost his job.

With no income, the family couldn’t make the mortgage payments, and the house was foreclosed by the bank. But Cordova’s family didn’t know the big secret he had been keeping from them. The thrifty young man was saving all of his military checks and eventually saved up $30,000.

When he heard what had happened, he was in Afghanistan. But that didn’t stop Cordova, who called a local realtor to make a bid on his family home. The seller knew the family was having problems, and very generously brought the price of the small home down to what Cordova had saved.

“I’ve been doing this for 25 years. I’ve never ever ever met a young man with the kind of commitment and compassion for family that Jose has. He is an incredible individual,” commented the realtor on the transaction, G. Varrato.

Cordova took a leave from active duty to come home and sign the contract for his family home.

“We are all really happy to have it back. My dad is going to make a few more rooms, so it will make it a little bigger. Everybody was really happy,” Cordova noted with a big smiled on his face.
