Homeless vet gets new home

PEORIA, Ill. -- A military veteran who has struggled with homelessness now has a permanent roof over his head.

The Veterans Affairs Office and the Peoria Housing Authority in Illinois helped him find a place to stay and even reunited him with his pet.

Some friends took in his dog when he could not care for it but now they are back together.

"We usually walk about 8 or 10 miles a day, last night we walked up to the Kroger on sterling and back. That was about 4 miles. He was still dragging me coming back," said Michael Kruschinsky, veteran.

He was able to stay there with his dog because of a veterans affair program.
