First of all, thank you, sir, for your service to our country.
As a vet, there are specialists available to you to assist in the process of purchasing a home. This can be accomplished whether you purchase locally, nationwide, or internationally.
I'd encourage you to work with a realtor who has this ability not only on the national level, but internationally as well. This process doesn't need to be cumbersome to you. Let a professional go to work for you!
