NCIS maybe just a tv show but the facts from last night were real every night in this country more than 70,000 veterans sleep on the streets.

Yes I know you’re thinking Mia’s on a rant about homeless veterans again!
Damn right and I’ll keep ranting till the damn government republican democrat or tea bagger I don’t care, you send them you fix them, you keep them safe!
In New York city more than 70% of the homeless have served their country in the military and yet they live on the streets.
In the entirety of the United States tonight more than 70,000 military veterans will sleep on the streets homeless, and have been for a very long term?
We will have sent by the time the last chopper lifts off in Afghanistan almost 2 million soldiers into harms way in the name of operation freedom and the Afghanistan conflict.
To date hundreds of thousands have returned home disabled in varying levels from quadruple amputee to severe PTSD, and believe me the only people who think closed head injuries or mental health issues are any less debilitating are the fools on capitol hill, who think the veterans coming home deserve nothing and they’re doing their best to achieve that goal.
70,000 of this nations bravest and finest, no not football players not basketball players not rappers real heros military veterans who laid their life on the line for us are left to sleep on skid row, in central park under a bridge in some mid western town.
The location dopesn’t matter whether desmoine or downtown manhattan it is our nations shame.
If we can’t guarantee that when we send them away we’ll guarantee to treat them right when they return, we have no moral right to ask them to ever take up arms in the name of freedom ever again. When the very thing they fight for in other countries is not guaranteed for them when they come home it is a disgrace of the highest order.
Dear Mr president if you’re the commander in chief we demand a rollcall of all you sent, and where ever they are it is your sworn duty to make their lives as whole as you can and put roofs over their head and now!

I am a disabled woman who through no fault of my own has wheels under my ass. I rely on the decency and common sense of local, state and federal goverments, as well as the retail community to abide by the disabled access laws and provide adequate ramps, disabled toilets, and not use them as store rooms or broom closets. This blog exists to find the offenders and out them, inform them, and report them if necessary and shame them into doing the right thing when all else fails.
