Studies by the Veterans Administration and the Department of Housing and Urban Development estimate that on any given day, 67,000 military veterans are battling with homelessness. Veterans make up more than one-third of the homeless population.  Many suffer from psychological problems brought on by the trauma of combat, while others suffer feelings of isolation that make it difficult to assimilate back into society.
