    Medals To Cardboard Signs

    I'm not a veteran, I'm not even american but the concept is atrocious.In my country we're poor, almost the poorest in the world but we can still find a place for someone in our homes.With all that money hovering in the first world power they can't even afford to give people...

    The men and women in/out of our military deserve

    so much more than what they are getting. I don't believe the amount of veterans that are out on the streets having to rely on strangers for enough money to make it through the day. It's plain wrong and it shouldn't happen. Nobody has done more for this country then our service...
