My father, grandfather, uncles, and many close male and female friends served in our country’s armed forces. It is troubling to me to see men and women who have courageously served our country become homeless and living on the street. We must provide services to our veterans to ensure their security here at home. Veterans must have support systems and better communication to let them know what services are available to them. We must ensure that Veterans Administration Hospital Systems are just as equipped as all other healthcare systems in America. Our VA healthcare systems should not be providing subpar healthcare, and those systems should include better care for mental health, PTSD, and strategies for reducing wait times.
