Boss Pays Off Vietnam Vet’s Mortgage So He Could Retire Early

boss pays veterans mortgage off

A 69-year-old Vietnam veteran is retiring early thanks to the generosity of his boss.

Albert Brigas has been working as a mechanic at Renown Auto Restoration in San Antonio, Texas for the last 13 years. He has also been living in the same house for the last 24 years—and he had been putting off retirement until he could finish paying off the mortgage in 2020.

Rudy Quinones, who owns Renown Auto Restoration, said Brigas is a dependable employee who came into work every day, even when he was sick.

“Albert is a humble individual, extremely hardworking, would give the shirt off his back to anyone.

He is just one of those guys that had so much pride in what he did.”
