"More homeless female Veterans seek shelter." Is this how we support our troops?

There is absolutely no excuse for this. Time and time again, we hear from all Americans of how great our troops are and how much we should support them but where is the outrage over this? Why does something like whether or not two people should be able to marry and "preserve the sanctity of marriage", even though the divorce rate in the U.S. is through the roof, be more important than homeless Veterans who have served this country?

Where is our government? Why should the Dayton Veterans Affair Medical Center be privately funded?

Throughout this entire election cycle, we've listened to numerous polls that Veteran's issues was not the number one priority for voters. Yet these are the same people who put a nice shiny magnet on their car and think that they have done their duty for this country.

It's time for Americans to stop the rhetoric and put their money and time where their mouth is . . .
