    ways we can help veterans by giving them food and water. plus make prices cheaper for everything. take them to a doctor to fix their minds up. take them in to your house and take care of them because they are doing stuff for us like protecting us.we have to realize that they need help when they get out of the service.

    Veterans that come back from war are homeless .It is a problem because the United States is putting them aside .The soldiers that fight for our country ,you don’t care if they’re homeless. If I were you I would respect them because they fight for our country.For about 10 years getting killed out there by dogs and people. I think the United States should provide housing until there fully functional ,to be a civilian or a pedestrian and match with other civilians as well.

    Three things veterans go through is homeless, drug problems, and lottering. We sould take care of our veterans more so we can show some respect. We give veterans a homeless life and we lef them behind. We sould do more to help them so everyone in the United Stats NYC better and make less homeless people.

    What I think is realy not fare is that lottering tickits. The homeless people have no home and they give out tickits more to homeless people then civilised. When veterans get tickits they lost a lot of money that they have like they get money than they loss it in a second. All schools, towns, bussenses, and all around United Stats shoud donat to veteranis.

    i think its sad when soldiers come from the us-army that they go on the the street . i think that just so sad after they fight for our country we just forget about it .why would the government cut the off for them selfs that is so bad and cruel and wrong. that soldiers that fight in the war just end up on the streets its like so sad that i could just cry :**[ . but the good thing is that the people is trying help the soldiers get back on there feet. so make donations help them please:[.i should hold a fundraiser to raise money for them to buy food ,water and clothes.they should be treated with respect then be on the streets >:[ like come on government really wow.

    Veteran’s are people who severed in the military [U.S Army Navy ,Marine Corps, Air forces and cost guard of time of the war peace. Veteran’s and solders half who came from the war became drugs addicts,homeless suicide .20: percent can’t find jobs. But they are currently 1.8 million female Veteran’s in the United States. Most then 9 millions veteran’s are older then age 65 .To help them we could raise $ money for the man and women

    Here are three problem’s with Vets
    1.Vets are going suicide

    2.Vet are having drug problem’s

    3.Being homeless

    So im picking being homeless. They are having trouble times on the streets.The government should treat them better give them home’s.I like how the people help them with
    there problems.In Chicago they have a stand down program.

    Everyone should help homeless vets. The gov. should help by giving homes. In
    the stand down program is nice.They have three days in step down.The people are nice,
    brave,and good people.

    many people in veterans day don’t have job’s and they don’t have money. they also don’t have the money to go to the hospital they had to what for two week or three week they had lot’s of problems some people sleep on streets and some people didn’t have homes .

    to help them we would save more money to buy medicine, pills and find people who like to help. We have to tell everyone about this problem so people know to help.
