Piedmont veteran promised a home 2 years ago still does not have one

Sometimes, promises made with the best of intentions don’t always work out.

Almost two years ago, a nonprofit group named “Helping A Hero” promised to build Jessie Fletcher and his wife a new home.

Fletcher was a Marine sniper who lost both of his legs and parts of several fingers when he stepped on an IED in Afghanistan in October 2011.

Even though they had a ground-breaking in Welcome in March 2013, Fletcher seemed to be about the only person who doubted that it would be built by last fall. And he was the only one who was correct.

In fact, the lot where they did the “ground-breaking” looks just as it did the day they had that ceremony, 15 months ago.

This edition of the Buckley Report looks at why nothing has been built and where things go from here.
