U.S. Veterans Are Homeless!!

By James Jones

As we celebrate Veterans Day and honor our servicemen who have died and sacrificed to keep our country free, my thoughts go to an article I read this week in one of the city newspapers.

I was shocked to read that no less than 25 percent of our homeless in this country are veterans. It doesn't matter what war, whether it was popular with the people or not. These people answered their country's call and spent time away from their families, risking their life and limb so this country can be safe, maintain our free society, and worship God individually, free from government regulation.

There is something radically wrong in this country if any of our veterans are among the homeless. Bad enough that anyone has to be homeless, but our veterans......Just not acceptable!!

We need to lobby our representatives in government to fix this. Come up with a plan so a veteran would have a place to go if he or she loses their home.

Copy and paste this article into an e-mail and send it to your representatives with your comments added.
