I will NEVER understand this EVER. You fly flags, tie ribbons, say you are so proud of them, then just forget about them, leave them, let them suffer for the service they have done! Makes as much sense as US Gun NON Control..... I wrote this for a US Magazine. This is Pt 2.
What is SO HARD or WRONG with caring decently for Veterans? 22 U.S. veterans commit suicide every day!

This Photo Series Captures What Veteran Care In the USA Really Looks Like
A recent study showed that roughly 22 U.S. veterans commit suicide every day — about one every 65 minutes.
Veteran Care and Veteran Suicide in the USA is a scandal! How can such a patriotic country, with flags everywhere, so proud of their “boys” and their country let so much pain, suffering and tragedy go on? Whenever I am in the USA, I see flags, ribbons, bumper stickers, about supporting our troops, but you have the worst record in the Western World in treating, caring and honouring your veterans! 3,000,000 homeless every night with over One Third of them veterans.
Do you stop caring when it means you need to pay to look after them? Is it just a superficial “our boys” until they come home and need help? I think it is a tragedy and a major Scandal! Land of the free? To serve your country, possibly die, be mentally scared for life, then dumped out the trash! The same country that thinks Stephen Ambrose [Band of Brothers] writes REAL history! What is wrong? Why is this allowed to happen? They don’t need monuments, they need care and decent medical attention until they are fit and healthy in every way!
At the end of last summer, photographer Devin Mitchell started travelling around the United States documenting the diverse lives of veterans through semi-surreal portraits for his senior thesis project.
