SPRING, Texas - Just days before Christmas, a Grinch stole the holiday spirit away from a Houston area military family.

While former Marine Joshua Beaver and his family were out to diner, a thief broke in their house and took their TV, electronics and every gift under their tree.

After serving three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, the wounded veteran never expected his own countrymen to cause him such pain. “It's been a struggle… And to be robbed at Christmas is hard,” Beaver said.
