Help is there more today then years back!
Today if your on the streets as a true Veteran and do not seek help there is a bigger problem.
We still have Veterans on the streets here (OK City ) but they wont get a job or move off the streets! you can only help thoses who wont the help!
We have veterans who need medical help but wont seek it and wont take what is given to them on veteran sweps they do in the city each month!
Help is there for ALL Veterans and for ALL wars veterans..........
Yes, I know the help is there. I see it every time I visit a VA hospital. I also see and speak to vets who don't want the help. I know one man who served and tells me the years and how happy he is, living on the streets and he wouldn't change it. That is his reality and he is safe and happy from his state of mind. No he does not want the help and will cuss you out if your offer it to him. Yes this is a sad reality for some vets but some vets have been destroyed by life as it is today. The worry of keeping a job to support a family, the worry of bills that are due and you can't keep up with them, the worry of medicine you can't afford and the reality of death around each corner. Some vets I have spoken to, look forward to the after life because it offers a solace that things will be better on the other side. It is hard to understand this reality. When you are broken and destroyed by the way the world is today, it is hard to come back. Just the simple things of where to get a meal, when to get out of the cold, and only worrying about how you have to survive are the simple rules of today much less the hard lifestyle of today. Talk to one of these men or women who live this life. Don't try and change them, that will only make them angry, just try and understand what destroyed them and then look at today and understand you are not there yet but you could learn the lesson of survival in a limited world of choice.
