Snobs don't want no low life veteran in their neighborhood.
Wealthy whites are turning this into a race issue.
The home meets all existing building codes.
The House should be razed.

Georgia Homeowners Association Blocks Construction Of Charity House For Disabled Veteran.

Even after laying his life on the line for the country, and sustaining injuries because of it, Sean Gittens couldn't get the charity house he was offered.


In the town of Evans, Georgia, outside Augusta GA, the family of Gittens, a disabled veteran, is moving out of a development known as Knob Hill after the Georgia Homeowners Association halted construction on a house meant for him. The house would have been provided by the charitable organization Homes For Troops, which builds homes for veterans who sustained life altering injuries in the line of duty.


AOL Real Estate reports that Sgt. Gittens had been serving in the military since 1988 and had been deployed in Kuwait before being paralyzed by an IED blast in Iraq in 2008.

    His having served from 1988 to 2008 would indicate that Sergeant Gittens was not a young kid but rather a seasoned veteran nearing retirement anyway. So now, when he would have been retiring this group is blocking him out? I could not open that link, it kept redirecting me.

    But it is back to the Homeowners Associations again, little napoleons who want to press their thumbs down on other people. People should not have such control over others.

    This homeowner's association does not deserve to have as good as Sergeant Gittens in the neighborhood. He would surely bring it up more than it deserves. Just another reason why I would not want to live in a place like that.

    May Sergeant Gittens have a home in an even better place with more welcoming neighbors.

    Well said. You are right, he is a seasoned vet. People are more concerned about who fits in & who don't at the courty club.

    Yeah. I don't even own any golf clubs. I participate in several sports though at my age. One of them is archery. I don't suppose though that those HA buffoons would want me walking around shooting arrows into targets set along the golf course though would they?

    As far as I'm concerned this injured veteran has the right to fit in. I probably would not fit in at a country club either.

    I need to know more to make a judgment. Doesn't look good though, at all.

    The vet don't fit the lifestyle of the country club, golf playing, polo squash club snobs.

    The home meets all building & zoning codes. Bottom line, they don't want what they concider low life living in their area.

    I do think this community was more concerned with those things than color. Doesn't GA house one of the largest populations of highly paid and educated Black people in the nation? I'm sure you could find a well-to-do Black family in that community. I could be wrong though.

    Your right. This location sits between two gated golf & horse riding communities. This area is obsessed with the enforcement of Homeowners association codes. More gates & walls are thrown up to keep people like this vet locked out. The vet would have better luck getting accepted in to the Masters than getting in to this community.

    This has our community torn apart. About half favor the ban, the other half favor the veteran.

    Snob Hill.

    The veteran deserves better than that. He put his life on the line, so he deserves more respect.

    There must be more to this story than is stated here ? The Georgia HOA has the right ot do whatever they please ? Guess they don't want to have this person around this area ? The ACLU could check on this one

    I live just a few miles down the road. We can't even fly Old Glory on Independance Day from our front porch without reprisals from our homeowner's association. The PC brigade has us by our throats.

    Augusta GA is over ran with ex-pat retired liberal Yankees from Michigan & Wisconsin. They call all the liberal PC shots.

    To hell with the place. It does not deserve to have fine patriots living there. May the good people move out and the whole neighborhood fall into a deep sinkhole!

    What's the problem? The home donated by a charity organization serving disabled veterans meets all building & zoning codes.
