I’ve been outside of US soil during the past 2 years and couldn’t contribute more to my community. I was planing on doing so but I’ve continued to travel within the CONUS. I was in a small community down South that is home to a major military installation. The homeless shelters are underfunded and the prospect for the budget for the new year looks bleak. I saw many more homeless vets than previous years. I don’t reside in that community; however, I personally know 3 elected officials. I don’t know if it will help but I’ll contact them after them early next year to offer any help. It bothers me that these brave men and women have given so much of themselves on the battlefield but our great county cannot take care of them in what appears to be a real dark time in their lives. I consider the opportunity to serve a hot meal and coffee to these brave souls an honor.
