On San Vicente Boulevard in Brentwood, there’s an unusual-looking homeless encampment. It’s a row of nearly two dozen large, identical tents with American flags pinned to the outside. This is home to a number of homeless veterans who say they’re protesting decades of failure to provide more permanent housing for them on the nearby West LA VA campus. KCRW learns the origins of the protest and gives an update on future plans for the property.
