There are many circumstances that can lead to homelessness. Some Veterans become homeless due to a combination of housing shortages and high unemployment. Other Veterans may be dealing with painful memories or health issues. Find links to help here.

We should not have veterans because we should not have wars.In reality we do have wars and some brave soul is the ultimate victim in so many ways.The way we show or rather do not show them appreciation is a testament to the dysfunction of this country.Dandelion, Your son is a hero whether he receives medals or not.I live with a veteran of Vietnam, another irrational war.I can only look at this drastic descent into hell on earth for these poor Veterans and be sick about the horrors of the concept of war and all that are affected.♥

Thanks Sheryl! Our Veterans deserve so much more than what they receive! If it were not for Veterans past and present we would not have the country we do. Freedom is not free..never was and never will be. I am proud of everyone of our Veterans!! So I say... THANK YOU VETERANS!!!..today and always!!

Great resources, Sheryl! I'm not surprised that you posted this. You're always thinking of others. Tasunka is right: your son is a hero, and you have much reason to be proud. Like Tasunka, I also live with a Vietnam war veteran, and even though he returned home without serious emotional baggage, I still resent that he was forced to fight in a war he didn't believe in. My father, on the other hand, was affected by his service in WW II for the remainder of his life --which wasn't all that long. The torment he suffered made our lives very difficult. Veterans Day is a very important day, and veterans are very important people. I just wish they were treated as such!

Thank you for posting this information, Dandelion. No veteran should ever be homeless! As others have said, your son is a hero. I am so sorry that your father and your family had to suffer because of the horrors of war, Susanne.

Most of the veterans who served in wars didn't really have a choice to start with. So it is even more fitting that they be recognized for their service to our country. I do not believe in war and was never drafted (thank God), but I can appreciate those who have and do serve our conntry.

Noted, (hopefully). Thanks, Dandelion. It just made me sick to know Bush funded those wars with our tax dollars and didn't even put it on the budget. Billions went to mercenary Corporate contractors....still are. But, when our troops come home, they get to deal with more nightmares that are UNfunded by us. There should be a law that for every dollar spent on war, one dollar must be put in a special acct. to fund the returning veterans needs. Just makes me want to alternatively scream and cry.

Thanks for sharing this Sheryl. Our country does not do right by its veterans at all. I think Lois Jordan's idea of a law where for every dollar spent on war, one dollar must be put in a special account just to fund returning veterans needs. That is such a good idea. Of course, congress would find a way to borrow from the fund.
