HERMITAGE, Tenn (WTVF) — A disabled veteran fights his homeowner’s association for a wheelchair ramp.

The veteran and his wife say they were told to take down the ramp or face a lawsuit. Everyday 69- year-old Selross Adams finds the strength to help her soon to be 72-year-old husband get in and out of the house.

“Being exposed to agent orange just ruined his body,” Adams said.

William served a year in Vietnam. He now has PTSD, poor circulation, diabetes and a whole list of other ailments that claimed his right leg, a big toe and soon another toe.

The Adams’ are now taking their fight to the Tennessee Fair Housing Council and have filed a federal discrimination complaint.
