It’s Veteran’s Day, and I recently saw this video and it just nailed me. It broke my heart. That this can be happening in America is a shame, and I mean that literally and an outrage. The fact that there are around 7,000 foreign invaders headed for our southern border and that we should even entertain the thought of allowing any of them in, and giving them any kind of social services or benefits is a disgrace. And to the “do-good” helping hand out private social groups that would help the invaders but are not helping our Veterans first? You are a sham, you are a sham and a fraud.
Someone made the comment to me recently about people not wanting the caravan in the country because they look different than we do. What utter B___ S___. חרה to put it plainly.
I’m not a man, yet I would imagine the vast majority of the veterans in need of help are men. I’m not a black, or a Mexican, and only a little Native American, nor am I Asian. But we have homeless veterans that are, and I can promise you, I care far more about them than I do any illegal invader. No matter how pathetic CNN (#FakeNews) makes them look. We owe our veterans. We owe them a debt of gratitude for their service, and we owe them far more help than they are getting.
With the Demoncratic win in the house, I do not expect to see things improve for them at all.
At the end of the video there is quite a list of agencies should you choose to check them out. I reached out to a friend for some solid leads, and that’s what these are.

Special Operations Warrior Foundation https://specialops.org/
Fisher House Foundation https://www.fisherhouse.org/
Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program https://www.yellowribbon.mil/yrrp/

And now, the video.
These are the statistics given in the video. Just in case you get caught up in the story and don’t absorb them, here they are to read over.
300,000 Veterans sleeping homeless on the streets, and rising.
Over 1.4 million are at risk of becoming homeless.
More than 67% of homeless Veterans served our country for at least 3 years.
Divorce rate among military couples has increased 42%.
An estimated 460,000 veterans suffer from PTSD.
Homeless veterans spend an average of 6 years on the streets.
The veterans administration has resources to serve only a fraction of our veterans.
Nearly 5000 veterans die by their own hands every year.
This is a large part of the list given at the end of the video, if I linked it, the link is active at the time of writing. Some in the video aren’t, and this is not the full list, but it’s a bunch of them.

For those of you who have served in the military, you are heroes. You are my hero, I don’t care if you peeled potatoes or washed sheets.

You put aside your own life to serve our country, no matter your circumstance in life now, I ask G-d to bless you and your family, and bless ya’ll richly.
