Study: 1 out of 4 homeless are veterans

Veterans make up one in four homeless people in the United States, though they are only 11 percent of the general adult population, according to a report to be released Thursday.

And homelessness is not just a problem among middle-age and elderly veterans. Younger veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan are trickling into shelters and soup kitchens seeking services, treatment or help with finding a job.

  1. Help them I know One personally and he had to go back yet again to Iraq, he needs a place to stay when he gets back. He will be back in US, in 13 months from this day now can you help me help him.

  2. It takes many lies to convince a human being to kill another human (i.e., war), and the personal result is that it degrades the human soul. Yet, the conservatives scream loud and hard that the needy should never be helped because a welfare society is degrading. There’s enough truth in it that it sticks, but rest assured, the actual intentions of a conservative, are not at all concerned about degrading other people. That is their speciality!
