(Veterans’ Day) In Honor of Those Who Died & Those Who Came Home & Never Lived Again. A Fact You Won’t Forget.

There are approximately 300,000 veterans of war living on the streets of America today.

They have served in World War ll, Korean War, Cold War, Vietnam War, Grenada, Panama, Lebanon, Desert Storm, Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan) and Operation Iraqi Freedom… One third of all homeless people in America have put on a uniform and served their country.

Remember those who gave so much and got so little in return.  Give thanks and support.
