I am a veteran, there is already free entities in our system either through the VA or Veterans Outreach. There is drug rehab through both entities along with other state assisted agencies. The only reason a veteran or anyone is homeless is their own lack of initiative. There are so many government assisted programs to wipeout homelessness. First the individual veteran or nit needs to step up and want help. I know people who were homeless then seemed out help and living a normal life. Stop blaming everyone but the individual.
