The 2014 Point-in-Time (PIT)

The 2014 Point-in-Time (PIT) count revealed that there were approximately 49,933 homeless Veterans on a single night in January 2014 in the United States. Over the past year, the VA has been working to eliminate a backlog of hundreds of thousands of unprocessed medical claims, but there are still about 400,000 overdue compensation claims left. In addition to those 400,000 veterans who are waiting for benefits, another 265,000 former service members have filed appeals with the VA claiming their disability benefits were mistakenly denied or cut. recent sample of 600 veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan found: 14% post-traumatic stress disorder; 39% alcohol abuse; 3% drug abuse. Major depression also a problem. Every day, 22 veterans take their own lives .
In 2014 our tax payer projected , military security spending , will be $ 738 billion . That $ 738 billion is , 70 % of ' your ' Discretionary Spending ' tax dollars .
We will spend 6 just % on our Vets
