TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - Thaddis Holmes was among the many veterans treated to a Thanksgiving meal Thursday at the Salvation Army in Tyler.

In an interview with KLTV 7′s Blake Holland, Holmes said he’s been staying at the Salvation Army’s shelter for the past two weeks.

“So, this is my home right now at the moment,” he said. “It’s a blessing to have a warm Thanksgiving meal here in Tyler, Texas.”

Despite his current situation, Holmes expressed great appreciation for the blessings in his life and even shared a poem he wrote to thank God.

“No matter what you go through in life, you always have to look up,” Holmes said. “And once you look and lean on God, he’ll be there for you.”
