MEEKS: It is a disgrace for us to have homeless veterans

A couple of days ago I read a lovely story about the Hometown Hero Project in a small town in Pennsylvania that helped to provide a home for a homeless veteran who served during the Vietnam War. He is ill as a result of his exposure to Agent Orange, the herbicide which was sprayed on the foliage in Vietnam to kill it. Of course, no one was especially interested in what it would do to human beings whether or not they were Vietnamese or our soldiers. How fortunate for this one veteran that folks have come to his aid. He will be given a refurbished trailer in which to live along with medical care and some funds to help with his expenses.
