On any given night, nearly 40,000 American veterans are left to sleep on our nation’s streets. Estimates show that 1.4 million veterans are considered at risk of homelessness. This is unacceptable.
I am a veteran. I fought for our rights. My brothers and sisters who fought alongside me earned the right to a warm bed and a roof over their head.
Why, then, do we have so many homeless veterans?
I would like to ask my county commissioner, Daniella Levine Cava, why she spends her time writing a letter to Mayor Gimenez about President Trump’s immigration Executive Order rather than working to reduce the appalling number of homeless veterans in her district?
