The government must make sure that every American veteran has a roof over his head.

Give these men and women a job to learn self respect and 'adjusting to the new society way of living'. No one gets a free ride. We once had a country that took pride in work and the self respect it used to bring. Let's bring that back and give these vets a chance in today's society to show that they belong and are a productive part of the new society of the poor who are living mouth to mouth.
Society over these recent years has created so many problems for people who want self respect and are fighting to get it but with NO JOBS, how do you create self respect when you have none and everything else is taken away from you. How do you adjust to this corrupt system of govt that takes away the rights of veterans who fought for this country and lived through it? How do you adjust the mind of a veteran who has seen the horrors of war created by the president and approved by congress only to find how bad America has become today, with the poor getting poorer, no homes to afford, no jobs, benefits being cut and self respect being taken away and replaced by drugs that dull your mind in a excuse to name a disorder called PTSD and no help to combat this disorder BUT we will cross our borders to fight for other countries in the name of freedom and come home devastated with little or no help from a govt that put us there!
No wonder why this disorder is so ramped?

That is wonderful news! The government needs to buy homes for every American veteran who does not have a roof over their heads.
