I did alot of volunteer work w/ "homeless vets" in the Richmond area, many years ago. Sad to say, the vast majority of these "Vets" were not veterans of anything other than booze, drugs and jail. I found very very few real "homeless Vets'. Of the few I did find, only a small handful of them wanted to actually get off the streets and get the help they needed. To this day I occasionally go and visit one old trooper who still lives in a tent camp on the river. Im sure there are more Vets on the streets these days, and they surely need your help, BUT, be aware that ALOT of these characters are just frauds looking to cash in on your efforts. Nothing hacks me off more than fake Vets. Also, you need to take the stats regarding homelessness in general and homeless vets in particular, with a grain of salt. I found out for myself that the people who compile these figures have their own agenda and make absolutely ZERO effort to verify whether a homeless person is an actual veteran.
That being said, I applaud your concern and your efforts, good job.
