OCCF Veterans Report 2013Our heroes are Orange County’s military veterans. After fighting for our country and our freedom, they deserve to come home to a good job, secure housing, decent education, and help with the aftershocks of war. While that is our goal, it is not yet the reality. In Afghanistan and Iraq, the longest wars in U.S. history have taken a huge toll on American service men and women. After coming home to Orange County, too many of our veterans experience anything but a hero’s welcome. Instead, many encounter unemployment, homelessness, poverty and depression. This we can, and must, change. This special report outlines the case for coordinated, county-wide efforts to give our veterans the homecoming they deserve. in the county they call home.
