An impoverished homeless veteran begging for alms on the sidewalks is not an uncommon sight to see in Ontario, California as well as in many other cities in the United States.
Indeed, many of our over 20 million veterans are suffering from poverty due to a lack of jobs and support from the government. For some, the problem is exacerbated by service-related physical injuries and mental disorders.
This is deeply troubling and deplorable considering that these veterans are supposed to reap the fruits of their great sacrifice for the nation when they put their lives on the line to defend and protect our rights and our nationâ€™s security during their overseas deployment.
Because of the sheer size of our veteran population, our government is simply unable to provide benefits for many of them. But this problem has got to be addressed despite the limited resources available for our former servicemen and women.
