Background:  This year, State Commander Michael Hoag has chosen Homeless Veterans as his Special Project. 

Homeless veterans continue to be a defining need in our communities.  Homeless veterans continue to make up more than 17% of the homeless adult population. As reported at the end of 2019 there still were some 37,085 homeless veterans in this country, a 2% decline from the previous year but still an unacceptable number.

These homeless veterans include not only those from our recent conflicts in Afghanistan, Kuwait and other regions but include serious numbers from World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Grenada, Panama, and Lebanon.
