Thank you for your service/sacrifice.
You really want to look into using your VA entitlement instead of rent to own.
I can do VA loans down to a 580 credit score and I have extensive experience with helping people clean up their credit and increasing their scores.
I'm a VA financing expert & would be honored to help you.
