The men and women who serve in our military give us all the chance to thrive in our homes and communities. It is unconscionable that they should not also have homes of their own.

As a nation, we must be committed to ensuring that each and every veteran is provided with decent housing and the means to secure it. We owe them much more, but certainly no less.
