Yikes. Iraq vets in homeless shelters

This should give you pause: Iraq War veterans are already showing up at homeless shelters, including some in Los Angeles, UPI reports.

PTSD, ill-treated war injuries, substance abuse problems – all the classic wounds that drive vets out of society and onto the streets – are being cited by young men landing at shelters across the U.S. after rotating out of Iraq, according to the piece.

Cannon fodder. Used up. discarded. Not the Army’s problem now. But they weren’t homeless when they joined, now were they?
