This is Shameful

Study: 1 Out of 4 Homeless Are Veterans

This is how we treat our heroes? We allow them to fall through the cracks and live on the street?

The problem of homelessness is shameful but that a quarter of them are our military vets is just incredibly and shamefully wrong.

I'm sure some of them are suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome and other ailments generated during their service and that just makes it all the worse. These men and women were used and then discarded and left to fend for themselves.

Someone once said that you can tell an awful lot about a society from how they treat their prisoners, well you can also tell an awful lot by how they treat their heroes too. And I don't like what I can tell about our country.
