Two women from Maryland have been arrested and charged with theft and fraud after they were found to have defrauded and robbed an elderly, infirm veteran.  

Women Rob Veteran Of Car, House, and Savings

In addition to robbing the man of up to $250,000, the women, identified as Christina Marie Bozman, 57, and Christen Michelle Bozman, 32, allegedly stole the man’s vehicle. 

Via the Salisbury Daily Times:

“The release said the veteran, who has not been identified, had serious medical conditions and a local dealership had provided one of the vehicles equipped with wheelchair capabilities free of charge. The vehicle was not used by the veteran because the Bozmans had taken possession of it.”

The two were charged with various crimes: Christina was charged with theft $25,000 to under $100,000; theft scheme: $1,500 to under $25,000; conspiracy to commit theft scheme: $1,500 to under $25,000; fraud ID info theft $1,500 to less than $25,000; forgery private documents; and issuing false document.

Meanwhile, Christen was charged with forgery private documents and conspiracy to commit theft scheme $1,500 to under $25,000.

Defending Veterans

Given how heartbreaking it is to see a veteran be taken advantage of, we’d like to look at some instances of people stepping up and helping veterans and their families.

Glendale, Arizona, banded together to rebuild a woman’s home after she lost her veteran husband and home in the same week.

This young boy worked to build a new mobility device for this disabled 25-year veteran.

Veteran Housing

Veteran housing is a huge issue that isn’t talked about enough, but there are some Americans that are stepping up and doing their part to help out. 

We can’t forget our furry friends who help our veterans in need of companionship!

Veterans experience suicidal thoughts at a higher percentage than many other groups. Instead of stigma and shame, we should work to show our bravest that there is hope and healing in their futures.
