"Veterans often face a host of challenges when re-entering civilian life. Despite Uncle Sam’s promises to provide health care as well as housing, employment and educational assistance upon their return from service, many are denied disability benefits while others cannot secure jobs or shelter.

Where veterans live can contribute to the problem. Although unemployment and homelessness have declined nationally for this group, such issues are simply worse in certain parts of America. In addition, veterans in many cities continue to suffer from long delays in mental-health treatment despite a $10 billion effort to expand veterans’ access to such care. In Phoenix, for instance, a veteran traumatized by the horrors of war must wait an average of 115 days before seeing a mental-health professional. Thousands lost their GI Bill education benefits in 2016 as a result of for-profit school closures.
