This sign was posted Sunday, June 26, 2016, at the entrance ramp to the Long Island Expressway in Queens.

The sign says it all.

A homeless Army veteran who used to collect donations from passing motorists now has a place to live, according to the sign at an entrance ramp underneath the Long Island Expressway in Queens, N.Y.

“I have been waiting for housing for 6 months! June 26th is now my ‘move in’ day,” the sign read.

Motorists passing the sign are assured of the veteran’s appreciation. “ I wouldn’t have made it without your help. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
