WATCH: RIP Veterans Debt Special.

Action News Jax and WOKV spent $10,000 to help forgive $1 million worth of medical debt with the aid of New York-based charity RIP Medical Debt, which bought a veteran debt portfolio, then notified local military that some of their debt was forgiven.

"I ran a physician organization for about 19 years and Jerry (Ashton, co-founder of RIP Medical Debt) came in trying to sell me collection services," said Robert Goff, founding director of RIP Medical Debt.
