There will not be any housing for the homeless veterans; it'll be jammed-packed prison-like 12-step religious cult conversion center and there will be so many rules that the only peace the veterans will have is when they kill themselves!

The Homeless Veterans Only Need:
Real Housing with keys and a lease in the veteran's name.
Real Training where the veteran gets a legal certification, degree, and journeyman status.
Real Jobs that they obtain because they are qualified, and pays a living wage for rent and allows them to thrive!

AND NO COUNSELING, NO RELIGION, and NO 12-STEP RELIGIOUS CULT INSANITY!
