The Alliance to End Homelessness is scheduled to release a report today, indicating that 25% of the homeless are veterans. A key finding is that younger veterans from the war in Iraq are finding their way to homeless shelters - and its expected that this is just the beginning of a disturbing trend. This report was based on data provided by a researcher at the University of Pennsylvania.
