It is a sad statistic, but one in four homeless is a veteran.
Last year, the Department of Veterans Affairs estimated there were approximately 195,000 homeless veterans in the U.S.
This year the number is down, but still thousands of veterans are living on the streets.
And its not just a problem for the middle-age or elderly.
Younger veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan are filing into shelters and soup kitchens seeking services, treatment or help with finding a job.
