Wilfredo Arce, a 62-year old elderly Navy Veteran down on his luck, was attacked in a NYCHA building in Brooklyn. This horrendous act upon an elderly man who served our country is appalling.
I'm 69 years old and a Navy veteran of the Vietnam era, and was homeless myself for a time. I therefore can feel for Wilfredo and hope he gets the help he needs.
As for alleged attacker Lytee Hundley, I hope he gets the book thrown at him so others will think twice before attacking another senior citizen.
