Now if everybody would agree to end Veteran's homelessness
, and help the one they personally know that is struggling, that would mean something.
I’m thankful we have a day to remember, and formally recognize our Veterans service, and their efforts to keep our people safe and our country strong. I’m truly appreciate the sacrifices our military’s men and women have made. Words of ‘thank you for your service’ ring hollow to our returning injured Veterans that are facing problems with little means to solve them.
That’s is why organizations like ‘Building Homes for Heroes’, that seek to end Veterans homelessness, are so vital to helping our Veterans. They give real meaning to ‘thank you for your service’.
130 Veterans and their families have something to celebrate this year that they didn’t have last year, a home of their own. A mortgage free home built by ‘Building Homes for Heroes’.
In truth those 130 mortgage free homes while appreciated, met only a tiny fraction of the need our disabled Veteran have for suitable housing. Not one of our disabled Veteran’s should ever face homelessness.
Charitable organizations alone cannot and should not be expected to cover the losses our government is responsible for creating. Isn’t it about time we Americans make our government answer the need for mortgage free homes for our disabled Veterans?
