Another ingredient for social volatility

As Guambat mentioned in the add-on to the last post, there are ingredients in place to raise social volatility in the US.

Here's another:

Armed forces veterans account for up to 25 percent of the homeless in America
“The largest bulk are Vietnam-era vets - they represent 80 percent of the vets who are homeless,’’ said Gerald Charmical, the VA’s New England homeless coordinator.

Senators Call for Increased Funding to Fight Veteran Homelessness
“Right now, more than 130,000 of our nation’s 24 million military veterans are homeless on any given day. This is a national tragedy - and our veterans deserve better from the nation they served,” Udall said. “The legislation would increase funding for homeless shelters so that more veterans can get off the streets and into safe environments as they work to rebuild their lives.”
