HOMELESS


magazine cover of homeless veteran
 

 Brave men and women of the Armed Forces of the United States are on guard for peace every moment of every day, from the depths of the oceans and seas to the skies above us. Our nation, and the world, still depends on those brave peacekeepers

The men and women standing guard for America are relieved by equally diligent others. When they come off duty, they will almost surely have a warm bunk to crawl into, or -- if they choose to remain awake -- hot coffee and friends to share it with. But not everyone who stood guard at the edge of freedom has a warm bunk to crawl into tonight ... not everyone who risked life ... or limb ... or sanity of mind to prevail in battle or secure the peace has a circle of friends to share a cup of coffee with. For all too many veterans, the loneliness of standing outside the perimeter of a normal life has never ended. For them, every night means long dreary hours in the dark enduring the elements as they struggle to be alert to the possible dangers around them. They are America's homeless veterans.

"Just as we don't leave our wounded behind on the battlefield, we must not leave our homeless veterans behind abandoned on the streets of our cities."-
VA offers a wide array of special programs and initiatives specifically designed to help homeless veterans live as self-sufficiently and independently as possible.
