Homeless veteran with peripheral neuropathy

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – There are many assumptions about those who are homeless and Saturday night a homeless man was seen walking the cold streets with no shoes.

The navy veteran said he loves his country, despite his personal hardships including peripheral neuropathy.

Instead of asking for money 59-year-old Wade Wikert said Merry Christmas and hopes to make it to the Veterans Affairs Medical Center detox center in La Jolla.

KUSI is working to get Wikert the help he needs.
