How Many Homeless Veterans Does India have
A senior of mine recently forwarded a "forwarded as received" WhatsApp message of a decorated Indian Veteran passing through immigration checks with ease in the USA after he told them he was a Veteran, albeit of the Indian Armed Forces.
The senior could not resist praising the respect, priority, protocol, applause, accolades and much else that Veterans of that country get in contrast to what we Veterans suffer in India.
As is my habit of wanting to learn more, I went to a few USA Veterans websites and found that quite a few of the much respected Veterans in USA are homeless. The USA govt has brought out certain aspects and also a (50) states wide census of the homeless Veterans. Please visit and peruse
I would request any one to direct me to any such data and analysis of the homeless Veterans in India.
I would also request any information of what the MoD recognised Veterans organisations such as IESL, Navy Foundation, or the Air Force Association has on the homeless Veterans of Indian Armed Forces.
