Kanye West Surprizes War Vets, Helps Pay Off Bills

Posted By on July 22, 2008

    Kanye West will be giving the troops a special treat. According to MTV, Kanye has teamed up with the network for a new "Choose Or Lose" one-hour show where he, along with Sway Calloway, surprize recently returned soldiers at their homes. The two will then talk to the vets about the difficulties experienced overseas and the challenge of trying to readjust being home. “There are hundreds of veterans out there who are falling through the cracks,” West said in the statement. “They make the ultimate sacrifices for us by laying down their lives, but it seems like a lot of them just get forgotten about. I know my music inspires and helps a lot of people but you can always do more. I teamed up with MTV and took the opportunity to share the spotlight with these veterans and hear their stories.”

    Not only will the vet's get to meet Kanye and Sway and share their stories, but MTV and the Dr. Donda West Foundation  (Kanye's Mother) will reward each veteran by paying off debts, rents, and funding any school tuitions. “Choose or Lose & Kanye West Present: Homecoming” airs Monday (July 28) at 10 PM.

    Kim Scott is still abusing me. I am not friends with her sisters nor cousins either. She abuses Marshall too, and Isis, and etc.

    I hope Kanye gets better, by the way. What a tough time of year for him. <3 Kim West K.
