    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...
