How 55,000 Female Veterans Ended Up On The Streets

Homeless Heroes (2014): The returning heroes abandoned on the streets and left to adjust to civilian life without support.
They're heroes to many in the US, but after the jubilant homecoming parades for those returning from war, what happens next? Well, an estimated 55,000 veterans are now homeless; and that's just the women.

"In Iraq I was on suicide watch", explains Tracy Orona, a veteran of the Iraq war. Coming home she went from suicide watch to fending for herself. Without treatment her disturbing dreams, insomnia and inability to handle normal life drove her to drink two bottles of tequila a day and ruined her marriage. Her story reflects countless others of those living on the streets, in cars and on other people's couches. "They don't want to got to a shelter. They want to be in a female veteran program. They need counseling", stresses Joe Leal from the organisation Vet Hunters. The most frightening aspect of this story is why they need counselling. As psychologist Dr Lori Katz explains, "The number one reason why female veterans are homeless is because of untreated sexual trauma." As many as three quarters of them say they were sexually assaulted in the military, leaving them unable to return to normal life and ultimately homeless. So why have they been forced to swap one battle abroad for another one in the country they served?

Gotta hand it to the Jews running things here in THE UNITED STATES COMPANY they treat all us Goys equally, male or female.  Just wait till the Goy girls supporting the Muslims invading us get theirs, wailing in the streets, you betcha.

it shows what this society has become. Foreigners, their land, illegals are more important than we vets are.

Sam, one only needs to read the infamous quote by Henry Kissinger to gain the Elite's perspective on those that serve as being  "dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns of foreign policy" - Source: Chapter 14 of Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein's book on Richard Nixon's administrations and his last days in office before his resignation - 'The Final Days', published in 1976.

It is not just vets, the ordinary peons (citizens/civilians/subjects) of western nations are nothing more than 'human resources' - why does no-one ever question that term? - for the Powers That Be.

Once the Elite have drained everything of value from those robbed at gunpoint of their time, work, money, assets and property  (through taxes and civil forfeiture - i.e theft ) - they will discard us like a used tissue.

What can veterans expect when apparently few seem to care about any serious issue. The more vets or people try to speak out the more they are attacked or ignored. When the entire establishment publically and secretly dismiss vets, who are still on a "Domestic Terrorist List", it shows what this society has become. Foreigners, their land, illegals are more important than we vets are.

ATTENTION MOMENT TO MOMENT THIS IS HAPPENING NOW EVERY MOMENT IT IS HAPPENING WHILE YOU FIND SO MUCH MORE INTERESTING, TO HOLD YOU IN THRALL... BUT MOMENT TO MOMENT THIS IS HAPPENING...WATCH THE IMMENSITY OF THIS MOMENT... THE TOTALLITY OF THE MASSES IN MOVEMENT... AND THE PILOTS MAD DRUNKEN FOOLS...APPRENTICES OF DEAD SORCERORS... “Y gracias a marionetas europeas como Rasmussen, el resto de Europa está siendo forzado ahora hacia un conflicto artificial con Moscú,” Las relaciones tensas han estado elevándose entre Moscú y el Oeste sobre Ucrania en semanas recientes con gobiernos Occidentales que aumentan la presión en Rusia. todo esso tiene la finalidad de mantener roturas entre los estados del continente eurasiatico pero qui bono? a quien regalamos nuestra justa paz?

It is a shame and disgrace what is happening to our Military Vets, lack of medical treatment, takes up to three years to receive their disability benefits, cheapest prosthetics for their loss of limbs! Over 27,000 homeless on the streets! We have to remove the problem and that is Obama!
