Our veterans â€” our heroes â€” are in need of saving. They are our once active-duty soldiers who fought our enemies in some foreign shores to protect our freedoms and our nationâ€™s security. They risked their lives, endured so much hardship, and made sacrifices to serve our nation and to save us from danger.
When they finally returned home and were honorably discharged from the service after the successful completion of their mission, they thought their dark days were over.
To their utter dismay, many of them found out that the â€śheroâ€ť tag they got was only lip service and that more daunting challenges await them back home. Unable to find good jobs because of lack of civilian work experience and insufficient education, unable to receive government benefits due them for one reason or another, bereft of support from their community and even their own family, suffering fromÂ service-related physical injuries and mental disorder, these veterans now find themselves in big trouble.
The combination of all these problems has led many to the path of destitution, homelessness, and hopelessness.
The fact that many veterans have this concoction of problems is truly heartbreaking and alarming. Some of these veterans are living with us in this great city. They badly need help.
