"Home Is Where the Trouble Is"
Here is an interesting editorial by Lawrence Downes in the New York Times about the challenges faced by returning veterans and the need for Congress to support VA Secretary Shinseki’s efforts to end homelessness.
Soldier On is keenly aware of the need to develop a readjustment and aftercare plan for returning veterans, including salary and benefits to ease their transition to civilian life. This change needs to begin with the Department of Defense, however peer-to-peer interaction is an excellent way for veterans to communicate and develop a community of trust, support, and integrity.
At Soldier On, we believe that safe, affordable, sustainable housing, coupled with the services veterans require, is the best way to care for our veterans and their families.
