"A Short Explanation........................"

Good Evening;
Just a short note here;
To Anonymous who commented on the recent post with the links to NCHV and the VA.

No I am not a Veteran, but I owe a debt of gratitude to McVets,
the "Maryland Center for Veterans' Education and Training"
for nights spent in their overnight emergency shelter on some
bitter cold and snowy and rainy nights.
And
I have known a few veterans who are out on the street for various reasons, some with mental health issues, who fought and bled for our country and were basically tossed to the curb when they got home. Lots of differing stories of course, but all with the same underlying theme of abandonment when they needed help. Men and women, and in some cases their families.

I just think that no matter what anyone feels about the policies and politics that sent these folks, kids in some cases, in harms way, ... they deserve better and a higher priority in housing and help.

Later.......................................Dave
