No man or woman who served their country should be left without a place to call home. The VA estimates that on any given night, 300 Minnesota Veterans are homeless.
All too often, Veterans legislation gets attached to politically unpopular bills to aid in their passage. The VFW supports all legislation on Veterans issues being passed as in a standalone bill.
Serving in the military, especially in combat, has a lasting effect. Veterans Courts consider those effects, as well as the individual‘s service to their country, in an effort to rehabilitate Veterans.
