An Iraq war veteran who was the alleged victim of a racially motivated beating in Mississippi continues to improve but is ‘not coming home anytime soon,’ his father said.

Former U.S. Marine Ralph Weems, 32, suffered a traumatic brain injury after being attacked by a large group of black men in a restaurant parking lot in West Point in August. Click here for injured in a motorcycle accident

After the attack, Weems had surgery and was put in a medically induced coma. He began treatment at a VA rehabilitation facility in Texas where he learned to walk again and is now set to move to a facility in either Louisiana or Arkansas.

‘He’s physically made a lot of improvements,’ Weems III told the Clarion-Ledger. ‘Traumatic brain injury takes a long time to recover in a lot of ways.’

A Gofundme webpage setup to help pay for his medical expenses has so far received over $9,000, but is hoping to raise $25,000.

Weems and a friend visited a Waffle House in late August, but soon left after a man politely told the pair that the restaurant was not safe for white people.
