Why Are There Homeless Veterans In America?
















Why Are There 

Homeless 

Veterans In 

America?




Iwojima
It upsets me to no end when I read statistics stating there are roughly 131,000 homeless veterans in America.  Why are there homeless veterans?! If the motto “leave no man behind” holds true, why has the US government and its citizens abandoned the very people who served their country and we the people the most?
Whether you’ve served in the military for 1 year or 20 years, veterans  should be able to count on the government for the bare minimum of food, clothing, and shelter.  The government needs to provide maximum support for those wishing to transition to the private sector with job placement and continued training.
GOOD SOLDIERS
There’s no mandatory draft now, so it’s important to realize every single military participant is voluntary.  Who is braver than those who enlist to serve in Afghanistan and Iraq?  Nobody!  We are reminded of their bravery today, but we should be aware every single day of their service to our country.
One of my closest in-laws lives near the poverty line in another state because he cannot find work in his trade (carpenter/electrician).  He served in the army for two years and was told before he enlisted that he would always be taken care of.  His back hurts, and he has arthritis at 62 years old.  We try and help him every month where we can, but we are not rich people and can’t support him indefinitely.  We try and contact the VA on his behalf to see if they can help him look for work and provide medical coverage.  They cannot.  He’s just *this* many years too young to start receiving benefits.  We cross our fingers every day hoping nothing happens to him.
A POSITIVE PERSPECTIVE
Just to get a better perspective, I asked a US Air Force serviceman friend of 6.5 years how the government treated him when he served.  His experience was positive, but highlights areas of improvement.
Based on my military experience I think the government and military take great care of their troops while they are still in the service, and very good care of military retirees. Of course there are outliers, but the majority of veterans who fall in those 2 categories have a solid support network and many programs and benefits to help them get by.
“The best index to a person's character is how he treats people who can't do him any good, and how he treats people who can't fight back.”
The group of veterans who seem to fall through the cracks are those who serve less than 20 years, which is the minimum amount required to receive a military pension and retiree benefits. Many veterans are not prepared to leave the military and enter the civilian world and there is not enough done to give them the proper training and information regarding benefits they are eligible to receive once they separate.The problem can be exacerbated for those with little formal education or service related disabilities, post traumatic stress disorder, and other service related problems.”
This goes back to my original statement: Whether you’ve served in the military for 1 year, or 20 years, veterans should be able to receive benefits from the government.  Patrick has since started a website especially for military folks called Military Finance Network to help out his fellow veterans.  Please have a look if you are a military personnel or veteran seeking personal financial advice!

The US government spent roughly $45 billion dollars bailing out Citibank in 2009.  Citibank then turns around and raises salaries for all their senior executives by 50% the same year.  Come on now.  If the government just spent $13.1 billion dollars, they could allocate $100,000 to each homeless veteran for housing, food, medical attention, and education and get them back on their feet.  Someone please tell me why the government is unwilling to do this? Maybe they do spend billions?  I really need to understand.
My generation of war is the war on terror.  My father fought in Vietnam and my grandfather was a captain in the second world war.  He shared with me a great many stories before he passed away.  I feel like somewhat of a dud because I have no military experience.  But, what I do have is a voice, through this site and beyond.  Hopefully this post raises awareness there is a serious amount of veterans abandoned who need help!  Please spread the word!

“Serving my country was a life-changing experience for me. It was during those years that I realized the importance of commitment, dedication, honor, and discipline. I have never laughed so much; nor have I ever prayed so much. I made life-long friends. The leaders and heroes I served with helped shape me into the man I am today. I feel honored to have been a part of such a great tradition and grateful to others who have walked the same path. Thank YOU
A little about us...VETERANS PROJECT
We run this non-sectarian, non-partisan organization to ignite discussion on our world and in our communities, to educate our world about the injustice of aggressive violence. 
We believe that in order to reach out to our peers most effectively, we cannot stand on religious arguments alone, and we cannot adhere entirely to one political side in our currently polarized culture. We believe that the consistent life ethic is not for any one religious group or for any one political position, but rather for everyone dedicated to human rights, life and dignity. 
No matter your reason for believing in the inherent value of human life, we hope you can join us, and through our efforts we can together endeavor to make violence unthinkable -
-- to make it history!
YOU CAN BE A PARTNER
FOR PEACE
AND ALL LIFE

Meals for Homeless Veterans

While veterans represent 8% of the total population in the United States, they are disproportionately represented among our homeless: a startling 12% of the homeless population are veterans, or 16% of homeless adults. Most homeless veterans–over 90%–are male. About half of homeless veterans are disabled.

You can help.

A recent study conducted by the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) reports that on any given night there may be over 75,600 homeless veterans in shelters and on the streets across the country. Over the course of one year (October 2008-September 2009), 136,334 veterans spent at least one night in a shelter or transitional housing program, more than 5,000 of them alongside their families.

While veterans represent 8% of the total population in the United States, they are disproportionately represented among our homeless: a startling 12% of the homeless population are veterans, or 16% of homeless adults. Most homeless veterans--over 90%--are male. About half of homeless veterans are disabled.

Nearly three million veterans and their families don't have enough to eat each month. This is in addition to the physical, mental, and emotional trauma many veterans contend with every day.

Two-thirds of America's homeless veterans served for at least three years, and one-third were stationed in a war zone. They have served in all the conflicts of recent years, including Afghanistan and Iraq (OEF/OIF).

Around the United States, community groups are hampered by lack of space, lack of funding, and a lack of publicity about the numbers of veterans who are homeless and the challenges they face while trying to turn their lives around. As a result, veterans in need of help don't have many places to turn.

You can help ease their burden. Just $25 helps provide nourishing meals for veterans.

Hopefully one day we won’t have any homeless vets, or homeless people at all. In the meantime, having a few care packages to hand out is a great way to help out, and can be a fun group project for your family, church group, or book club!

“When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me.”


I gave myself permission to care, because there are a lot of people in this world who are afraid of caring, or afraid of showing that they care because it's uncool. It's uncool to have passion. It's so much easier to lose when you've shown everyone how much you don't care if you win or lose. It's much harder to lose when you show that you care, but, you'll never win, unless you also stand to lose. Don't be afraid of your passion.
