60,000 veterans will sleep on the streets tonight while the share prices of the four largest military contractors reach all time highs.
|Homeless - Total US||636,017|
|US Population over 18 Years of Age||242,372,000|
|Veterans as a Percent of the US Population over 18 years of age||9%|
|Veterans as a Percent of Total US Homeless||8%|
|About 1 in 12.7 of the Homeless are Veterans||1 to||12.7|
At least this kind of misinformation does not demean Veterans, which I appreciate. I suppose it is put out there by organizations trying to raise funds to help homeless Veterans - who have an interest in magnifying the problem.
And any person who is homeless is a sad thing. A complex problem.
