    Medals To Cardboard Signs

    Homeless Veterans Are a National Tragedy

    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...
