    The other day there was a joint announcement about declining veteran homelesss. Now it's not perfect data --- I think it's a one night count across the nation which misses concentrated pockets. But I hope we really are making a progress and turned a corner by focusing on housing first initiatives. Also, I think there is a story that state and local policies are the really innovative programs. this rate, the long term homelessness problem might be fixed within the decade.

    Anyway, veterans day is just a few months November. Try to volunteer and give back to the community.
