I Think It Is Wrong That So Many of Our Veterans Are Homeless

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 171 People

    I think that's very sad.

    I'm gonna research why this happens. War is no joke and I think it's sad that someone who's already been through so much should have to face a whole other battle with homelessness.

    Not long ago, I read in a newspaper

    that a veteran was having to sell his medals that he earned in WW2 to pay his rent/bills.. Makes me so angry!
