That's too many of our heroes with no place to live. At least San Diego is looking into it but what about the rest of the state and the rest of the states.
Most states and cities could care less on the treatment of our veterans especially those who are homeless. I would love to see more done with the homeless vets but usually the cities and states will pass legislation to get them moved to where they are out of sight thus out of mind.
Partners exceed goal of housing 111 homeless veterans by 11/11
The day before Veterans Day, a diverse team of service providers and government officials met a goal set in June: housing 111 homeless veterans by Veterans Day. Ref. Source 1g.
It is always good to see people helping homeless veterans. But only 111 is just a drop in the bucket. I would hope that they continue to work to house more of the homeless veterans so that we get better care to those who have served for this great nation.

Great so long as they understand that there is probably that same number times 10 still looking for a home.
