Veteran Housing

Taking a little bit of a different route than my last few posts I want to write about a little bit of research I did after my last Writing for Social Concerns class on Wednesday afternoon.  We had presentation about the Soldier and Sailor home in Erie, PA.  This got me thinking about veteran housing in Western New York where I am from.  I did some research and found that there is no actual housing situation in WNY that is like the Soldiers and sailors home in Erie.  This concerned me and I looked a little more and found that there is a coalition finding housing for veterans, but that it is small.  I think that this is a sad reality that is lacking a place for those who have served our country to be taken care of in their old age and to help those in need of assistance throughout their lives after serving in our armed forces.
