Homeless veterans

Major Brian Hampton, President of the Circle of Friends for American Veterans, is demanding that the government do more to help an estimated 150,000 homeless veterans. “They come back, try to get into society and they experience a lot of psychological challenges, financial challenges, physical challenges, and as a result we have about 150,000 who have served in American uniform and are on our streets tonight,” Hampton said. He joins us to discuss the issue.
