I agree folks take a good look at this claim. The VA pays so little to a landlord itís very hard to get Veterans placed. Our veterans that fought for our freedom as homeless and hungry. They do not always get the health care they need and they are a forgotten society. Some Vetersns paid the ultimate sacrifice.

There is no reason for a veteran to be homeless unless they are sick or on drugs. They need to get jobs.
