What Happened?


So what do we need?
I would like to do a documentary about veteran homelessness and suicide prevention. I need think tank teams, research and documenting your interactions. You can make calls and this is something you can record on your phone if you'd like to. I really need mainly veterans or supporters of veterans. When going to an organization or VA to seek help, I want you to notice how much income plays a big part in their services being rendered. The point is: there is bureaucracy and red tape regarding services. Many of these regulations and stipulations were made by those who never even wore a uniform. My hope is to open peoples eyes up to the sad reality that we are not taking care of our own. So that is some of the main reason there may be so many homeless veterans and so sad that 22 veterans commit suicide daily in this country.
