DENVER — It took the FOX31 Problem Solvers just one day to resolve an issue that a retired Army veteran had struggled with for four months.
Elmo Jones, 57 of Aurora, served 21 years as a Green Beret in the U.S. Army.
He contacted the Problem Solvers for help after he felt ignored and betrayed by the Department of Veterans Affairs.
The VA was garnishing his retirement pay of $1,300 per month for child support.
But the problem is the child isn’t his. He faxed the agency the proof of a DNA test and he also has a court ruling saying the child is not his.
On Wednesday, the VA contacted Jones to tell him it decided to stop garnishing his wages.
