The Problem of Veterans

VeteransDay

Learning Target:

I can evaluate the information presented to come up with a cause and solution.

We researched and watched a 60 Minute Piece  about the problem of homelessness in veterans? We learned that 1 in 3 homeless people served the country.  Based on the Information why are so many veterans having a problem with homelessness?

Blog a piece that tells why you think so many veterans are homeless. Then come up with a way that we might be able to solve this problem.

    Veterans are homeless because when they come home people do not care about them . Also some veterans come home with PTSD. Many veterans have bad memories and they can’t think straight.Veterans often have an addiction like drugs or alcohol. Many of the veterans have very bad injuries. The government should make things better.

    The reason why veteran’s are homeless because is they have brain damage, are addicted to drugs, they over serve and can’t think right.I think that we can help them from doing drugs,alcohol,and being addicted. In the military they did everything for all the veterans so now they don’t know how to do things for themselves. Also the veterans can’t find any jobs that are related to the military. And Veteran’s over serve for ten years or longer. So when they come home they can’t live as a citizen they are still thinking like soldier. We can put them in a programs to stop them from doing drugs and alcohol.

    The reason why veterans are homeless after the war is because all of the killing and death messed their brains up. Then they started to do drugs, have emotional problems, and suffer from addiction.All this stress and commotion going causes many of them to even commit suicide.

    We can help them by getting them in a school that can help get rid of the addiction. I think that the president should give them a starter house and job when they got out.

  9. Veterans are homeless because they have drug problems and don’t have any money. They have been protecting their families from fighting in the wars They use drugs to also clear their minds. Some of them they would die and lose their body parts. They also have brain damage too. These are some of the reasons that veterans are homeless.

    Veterans are homeless because when veterans come home from war they do not know what to do.Also many veterans served too long, up to ten years. They go to war every year until something devastating happens. Now they are messed up and they do alcohol and drugs to make the pain stop. But end up addicted and unable to get a job.
    I think they should give them money, maybe housing for the homeless. If they feel messed messed up in the brain they should be given therapy.

    The veterans are homeless because they fought in the war.
    When they came home they are homeless. They are doing drugs drinking. They can’t forget the stuff that happened I think we should help the soldiers and the people that are homeless. We can help them by talking about drugs and drink and talking about what happend.

    I think veterans are homeless because when they come home people does not care about them . Also many homeless people have bad injuries. The government should make homes for them to sleep in.Also the government should help the homeless people stop drinking alcohol and taking drugs.

  14. The reason why veterans are homeless is they are homeless because a lot of killing going on during the war and stuff.They come back from war with many injuries then they start doing drugs and start drinking. Then they get addicted to drinking and doing drugs.When they come back from the fight and stuff they don’t know how to do anything.Their so use to the military doing stuff for them.Now they’re having nightmares about the people getting killed.They can’t keep a job they can’t keep in touch with there family because they don’t have a phone to keep in touch.That is why they are becoming homeless.I think the government should give them a place to stay I think they should get a mansion. That what they deserve because they fought for us.

    Veteran are homeless because when they come back from the army people don’t care about them. Also when they come back they don’t know how to pay bills. Sometime they use alcohol and drugs to feel better. This does not work

    I think veterans are homeless because they can’t focus on jobs because of the bad memories from the war. Also because of these memories from the war. Veterans cant focus on a job and they don’t know how to take care of themselves. Another reason that they cannot get jobs is some came back with terrible injuries. I don’t think the government is treating them fair.
    I would help them by giving the homeless people from the war free houses. I think they need counseling.

    The reason that some veterans are homeless is because they are sick. They are sick because that take drugs and alcohol. They take drugs and alcohol because of their memories from the war and seeing their friends dying. This things in their head and makes them drink the alcohol and drugs and self-abuse and then they cannot function.
    I would get them food and homes I would help them get into rehab to get off the drugs. I would also show them how to take care of themselves in the house and get them a job.

  21. Veterans are homeless because they are taking drugs and alcohol. They stayed inside the military too long and it is messing with their head. Now they cannot keep a job and relationships with their families. Now they are up on the streets and they don’t know how to get off the streets.
    I would let them inside my house to recap. Other people could do this too and help get them off the street.

  22. Veterans are homeless because they was from the military. Once they retried from the Military. They became homeless. Once they became homeless they had not jobs and they had to live on the streets. The reason are the war and what they saw their. I don’t think they think clearly. by nasir

  23. Veterans are homeless because they are on the battlefield fighting war and they get shot and they survive or they watch someone get shot. They come home with trauma know PTSD. The PTSD doesn’t make them think straight. Then they take drugs and alcohol and think it is going to cure them and it doesn’t. I would protest to help them and say to give them a home . Because they helped us and saved our country

  24. Veterans are homeless because they of the war. I think that they are homeless because they part of wars. In wars they saw a lot of guns being shot, they were not feeling safe. When they feel safe but they still have problems. They need to go to doctors that can help them. By Anaya

    Veterans are homeless because they did drugs and they didn’t know what was going
    on because they didn’t want to know what is happening and a lot of people had guns
    and that was very sad
