American Veterans

I am a widow of a Canadian military man. I just watched a documentary on American Veterans who are being ignored, living on the street and totally without support. I am glad to see your country turn your economy around but why should these vets be ignored? These vets are giving their lives, their limbs and there are some that will never have their normal life back. PLEASE do more for these wonderful people who give us our freedom.

Thank you for allowing me to write this comment.
