No matter what political party you follow, or if you don’t follow one at all; we as a society can do better than this, the only number we should feel is acceptable is zero homeless veterans, so that we can then turn our attention to all homeless citizens.
“In 2009, the Obama Administration committed to ending veteran homelessness in the U.S. by the end of 2015. Since 2010, there has been a 33 percent decrease in the number of homeless veterans. According to data collected during the 2014 Point-in-Time Count, 49,933 veterans experienced homelessness on a single night in January 2014. That estimate represents a 14 percent decline compared to the Department of Housing and Urban Development's 2013 estimate and a 33 percent decline compared to its 2010 estimate”.
