    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...

    Homeless Veterans Are a National Tragedy

    My father is a Vietnam Veteran. As a teenager he was witnessing things too horrible for me to even imagine. His years spent fighting that war are not often spoke of. As a teen, I didn't understand my father. I loved him but was often hurt by his quick temper, and seemingly...
