Don't know where you got your numbers from , but you are dead wrong. I work for the Dept of Veteran's Affairs and yes, there are homeless vets. But not as many as you think. The VA offers housing, voc rehab, job placement and free medical to any and all homeless vets. I see people all the time on the street, with signs that read " Homeless vet, please help"..........I stop and give them a business card and tell them about the VA, they go the other way. Most of these folks aren't even veterans, just moochers. Have you went and applied for disability with the VA for your "Banged up bones", didn't think so. Before you feel all abandoned by Uncle Sam, maybe you should open your eyes and see what is available to you. Not being a hater, just living in reality here.
