Homeless *Iraq vets* showing up at shelters

Full story at The Washington Times

U.S. veterans from the war in Iraq are beginning to show up at homeless shelters around the country, and advocates fear they are the leading edge of a new generation of homeless vets not seen since the Vietnam era.

"When we already have people from Iraq on the streets, my God," said Linda Boone, executive director of the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans. "I have talked to enough (shelters) to know we are getting them. It is happening, and this nation is not prepared for that."

...and george bush is just the president to cut their "social services" too.
