That figure, "150,000 homeless vets" is totally bogus. The VA study that came up with it was flawed. They asked people who recieve grants to run homeless shelters for the numbers of "vets" staying there. Of course the more "vets" the bigger the VA grants. The bigger the VA grant the bigger the paycheck.
Besides, if you ask a homeless person they will always claim to be a vet if they think they will get a hand out from it. There is no link between homelessness and military servce.
