Bill O’Reilly Needs to Apologize
Thanks to Pixie for pointing this one out…
We have homeless Iraq War veterans right here in Sioux City, Iowa (population 80,000). I shudder to think at how many Iraq, Gulf, Vietnam and Korean War veterans are homeless nationwide.
Homelessness is an especially pervasive problem with veterans, especially those who suffer from untreated Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and find it difficult to find and hold jobs. Many end up with addiction problems due to the PTSD, which compounds the issue. If we, as a nation and a society, send men and women to do difficult and harrowing things in our name, we NEED to take care of them when they come back home. Prompt treatment for depression and PTSD is the first step, and would (in my opinion) lessen the homeless problem for veterans.
