Veterans and Homelessness

A new Congressional Research Service report, via the indispensable Secrecy News. (Scroll down for PDF link).

So far, 300 who served in Afghanistan or Iraq are homeless, with more than 1,000 more at risk. At least fifteen percent with a serious psychiatric disorder. And remember that most of our men and women have not come home yet, of course, and that after Vietnam it was often a full decade before Vets found themselves homeless. . . . .
