Subject: This says only 23% of homeless are Veterans-

Honor is something that the past veterans in this country did not and still do not see. Their stories are hidden in shadows and their lives are trapped in a battlefield of red tape, cutbacks, and misplaced priorities. On any given day, 271,750 veterans in this country are homeless according to the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans. The statistics they have on their web site are sickening. (

* "VFVS says that 60% of the homeless are U.S. Veterans." What ever study you agree with the fact is that NO U.S. Veteran should ever be homeless or hungry.
