On Veterans Day I salute all who served our country including my Father who had a distinguished career in the Army.

On this bitterly cold Sunday, I must also add that it is heart-wrenching to know that so many of our homeless population once served our country in Uniform. Seeing so many on the streets paints a picture of a city that is broken and can do better particularly for those who sacrificed so much for our country.
