This is a great article. My father use to work at Downey VA hospital in North Chicago, IL. There were may vets there long forgotten by their families. In my father’s opinion, some were there, not because they were sick, but because their families may have abandoned them there.


Best way to support veterans? Do something nice for the military family of a deployed service member.
