On behalf of a friend who is a veteran and currently homeless. His situation is made worse by the staff of the shelter where he is currently being forced to find residence: As Veterans we place a healthy and strong mind, body, soul on the line for our Country and its Constitution, some of us do not come back, others come back missing body parts, others still have been fucked in the head - the point is many of us do not come back healthy and strong, they broke us, and these are the programs our VA sends us to - there is no reason that we should be treated in this manner, however temporary. Life, Liberty, the Pursuit of Happiness" - we deserve some of that too. Crossposted to +Sarah Cohen, LMT for additional coverage
Sadly, they're in Chicago. I told him about Harbor & Liberty. Apparently, it's nothing like that where he is. Woken up at 2am for bedchecks by staff screaming in his face, Gunfire outside, etc. Great for PTSD, right?
