The United States is not the only country fighting for the safety and care of Veterans. Nearly every ally of America faces similar challenges when their men and women return home from combat or military life.
A couple of years ago, a chilling statistic made the rounds on the Internet: 88% of veterans who attended a higher education institution through the Post-9/11 GI Bill, dropped out within the first year.
Evidence is beginning to mount that the VA and those attempting to provide much-needed services for our former women in uniform are failing. Sadly, forgetting to recognize the service of women in the military is nothing new.
The words “Veteran” and “homeless” don’t seem like worthy companions.
