Things are definitely getting worse in Los Angeles as the so-called “Lock Down” continues. Food supplies at homeless shelters are running low. Despite the City claiming that homeless are being put into hotels, the number on the streets seems to have increased. As more and more layoffs occur, more folks will lose their apartments and be out on the street. The homeless camp at the V.A. pictured in the video has grown in the last few weeks, and now over 50 tents are actually on the front lawn of the property, as well as two encampments on the outside. Questions for the VA:
Can the VA provide the homeless veterans with portable bathrooms and showers?
Can the VA provide food for the homeless veterans who are sleeping around the compound?
Can the VA provide medical help to the homeless veterans?
Can the VA provide any personal protection masks, disinfectants and gloves?’
Can the VA even provide trash cans and help keep the area clean? It looks pretty bad.
They want you to fight and die for your country. Can they bring themselves to organize these facilities to take care of the veterans in the time of their need?
