We have not forgotten, veterans fought wars and “All gave some and some gave all”. Many of these veterans have returned to society and have fallen through the cracks of life. For many their government benefits ended, some did not receive the mental help they deserved and needed and for some it was no fault of their own; the economy did not recognize our unsung heroes.
It’s quite disheartening to drive throughout the city and to see our former heroes laying beside porches, abandoned buildings and sleeping under bridges. Next to watch them march almost as uniformly as they once did in our armed forces, march to any available soup kitchen, carrying all their possessions in a handheld plastic bag, hoping to make it in line in time to receive a free meal. This is not the life our veterans deserve, you can make a difference, and your contributions will impact their lives forever. Help put our heroes in homes.
