Los Angeles County has the most homeless veterans of any place in the country: 6,300 by the latest count. It also has 387 highly valuable acres of property in West Los Angeles, on the fringe of Westwood near UCLA. They are supposed to be used for veterans' healthcare — and they do include a big hospital. But other parts of the property are in dispute, and a federal judge has ruled that the VA has leased them for purposes "totally divorced from the provision of healthcare."
