There's a group of veterans in Kansas City who are working hard to eliminate veteran homelessness. They even created a bus pass in the city that has given a half million rides to more than 3500 veterans! Check out Veterans Community Project and see the...

Tyler Cummings Veterans Community Project is an amazing organization. I’ve met a couple of the owners. As well as helped 2x4's for HOPE. All the skeptics should come help with the board signings and the project builds.
Adam Smith They do that here in Albuquerque, NM. Free rides on the bus got me to work when times were tough. One job turned into two, raises and promotions, now I drive and dont mind paying the taxes that support this. Im very thankful!
Jack Howett-Loutzenhiser These veterans should be the first people that we take care of,God bless to Kansas,I wish I could help but I will keep praying
Carlos Parscal Even if they are too cheap to give free transportation at least they could do is give a seniors discount, I think most fall in that category.
Corrine Thomas Homeless and veteran should NEVER be in the same sentence.
Dan McDaniels They don't do that here. Talk- 70% percent of helping veterans here is Talk. 💪 just talk.
Victoria Park The bus pass project should be good. Other states have tried this for different programs.
Edward A.Gross Do they really want the help most don't and would rather live on the street
Ed Shaw Our chapter is closing because of members losing sight of what it means to be a DAV member .
Lisa Hicks Hughes Paper pushers !!!!!!!! Forms and application Galore !!!! And Families can't find these people !!!!!!! #Collation for FAMILIES of lost Homeless VETS !!!
Vickie Lawson Craven Need this in every state! All of our vets deserve help!!!
Gretchen Rieck they created a bus pass?? what does that mean?
Pam Castillo We love u guys Hang in there

Today and every day we remember those who came before us. On this day 76 years ago, a date that still lives in infamy, the Japanese launched the attack that thrust the United States into World War II. DAV Life Member, Will Lehner remembers that...

Danny Karen King And some people think it’s ok to disrespect all of these men and women by taking a knee!!! It’s just sickening!!!
Allen Chandler This is for you I Will Stand on That Wall by Allen Chandler I was 18 and I stepped forward. I said I will stand on that wall and protect you all. I will guard my family and my friends and my country from all those who threaten us. The only thing I asked was that my leaders choose wisely. I was 18 I said I will stand on that wall and protect you from whoever came to do harm. I will stop the evil people whoever they might be. I will protect my family, my country. The only thing I asked was that my leaders choose wisely. I did not ask for cheers or awards. I said I will stand here because it is the right thing to do. I said hot or cold, day or night, at home or overseas, I will be on that wall. The only thing I asked was that my leaders choose wisely. I was there for over 20 years. I stood on that wall. I tried to protect my family, friends, and countrymen from all who would cause them harm. I served in every one of our 50 states, in over 20 countries, in over 20 time zones around the world. The only thing I asked was that my leaders choose wisely. I stood on the wall from the North Pole to the equator and tried to guard our country from those who would try to harm it. I stood on that wall. I saw my friends die. I killed. I came close to dying and was prepared to die to protect our way of life, to protect our families, to protect our country. The only thing I asked was that our leaders choose wisely. I stood on that wall because this country is still 1,000 times better that whatever is in second place. I stood on that wall for just under 8,000 days with the men and women who became my brothers and sisters. The only thing we asked was that our leaders choose wisely. You will never know the expression “I’ve got your back” till you stand on that wall. We stood on the wall in warm weather and cold. We stood in on that wall at the DMZ in Korea, the secret bunker in England, and three floors underground in Omaha, Nebraska. The only thing we asked was that our leaders choose wisely. We stood on that wall at three in the morning when the claxton sounded for a drill, a training session, or the real thing. We stood on that wall in the icy cold in Greenland, the balmy seas of the Mediterranean, the waste of the driest desert, and the downtown streets of the world’s largest cities. The only thing we asked was that our leaders choose wisely. There are over 2 million men and women standing on that wall today and the only thing they ask is that their leaders choose wisely.
Michael Raines God Bless you sir. We appreciate your service and we honor you today along with so many. Best wishes always.

Live Now! Caregiver Benefit Expansion Legislation Press Conference #CareForVeterans Watch Senator Murray’s YouTube stream here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xzYo9HC_ZQs DAV The American Legion National Headquarters Vfw
DAV Building on yesterday’ successful event culminating in the delivery of a 182K+ signature petition to Congress urging passage of a bill to expand caregiver benefits to severely disabled veterans of all generations, a group of VSOs has sent a letter to Congress today urging swift passage of that legislation. This bill will improve and modernize the care America provides #veterans, and includes an essential provision expanding #caregiver benefits to veterans of all eras. Download the joint letter urging passage of S. 2193 here: dav.la/2w.
Eddie Hoffmann This always happens. There’s a group that gets taken care of and some get left out. Look at CRDP, for example. Shouldn’t be that way but it’s how social welfare programs work.
Rich Goebel Sometimes it seems like there's more for caregivers, than there is to veterans.
