Just came home from a night of yuppie self-indulgence to read this. "According to the federal government, veterans make up 9% of the U.S. population but 23% of the homeless population. Among homeless men, veterans make up 33%. . . According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, the estimated number of homeless Vietnam veterans is more than twice the number of soldiers, 58,000, who died in battle during that war." Sometimes this country pisses me off so much it leaves me almost speechless.
