This comment by Tom Brechlin on the post From Colonel and Pentagon Aide to Homeless
After doing a little research, it appears that the numbers of homeless veterans is much higher. National coalition of the homeless says it’s more like 130,000 to 200,000. It also appears that much of what is being done is through outside organizations.
That’s why the recent budget deal that cuts military retiree benefits by $6 billion dollars is a problem, don’t ya think?
How many of these veterans are retirees?
But then again. homelessness in general has hit men the most and we don’t see much happening.
Do you think we as a nation have a duty of care to our veterans who come home from conflict or retire and need help?
