Veteran, Over Age for Dorm, Scrambles for Housing

BELMONT (KRON) — An army veteran awarded a Purple Heart is now pursuing higher education back home in the Bay Area.

The problem is, the college he has been accepted to attend denied housing to him, along with other veterans, only a month before school starts.

Combat veteran Ivan Zamora is working toward a bachelor’s degree at Notre Dame de Namur University at the age of 31 after he retired from the army.
