Virginia to Announce It Has Ended Veteran Homelessness

Hosted by

At the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier today at Arlington National Cemetery, President Obama addressed the issue of homelessness among veterans. "We've now slashed the disability claims backlog by nearly 90 percent. We're reducing the outrage of veterans' homelessness, and have helped tens of thousands of our veterans get off the streets. Still, the unacceptable problems that we've seen — like long wait times, and some veterans not getting the timely care that they need — is a challenge for all of us if we are to match our words with deeds." Leo Shane, Congressional reporter for the Military Times, has more on Virginia's efforts to end veteran homelessness.
