New shelter helps rising number of homeless female veterans

• Annie Gowen, Washington Post
Four years ago, Veronica Witherspoon was stationed in Baghdad, enduring roiling sandstorms and nearly daily rocket fire as she worked as a Navy petty officer at Camp Victory.

By January, she had left the military, lost her job as a civilian contractor, split with her husband and ended up virtually homeless, bunking with family members. Deeply ashamed of her predicament and desperate for a way out, she ran across a story on a military Web site about a new program for female veterans called Final Salute.

 Obama issues Foreign Work Visa`s to Muslims,and our Vet`s sleep in the park.   

I can`t help to wonder why any American in their right mind would enlist knowing how our Vet`s are given a back seat to Barry`s friends;the very same people that would try to kill them.
