Where is the VA in all this???  What about all those homeless programs that failed Vets?

https://www.foxnews.com/media/veteran-sues-being-arrested-holding-god-bless-homeless-vets-sign

Many homeless Veterans "would not be homeless" if VA did not take years to deliver benefits..how do I know?  

The VA did it to me, making me homeless for a short time.

The VA is there, in no small part, to help prevent Veteran homelessness.  Or, that is what a few VASEC's have told us.  (Shinseki, for example, promised to end Veterans homelessness).  

At least for me, the VA did more to CAUSE homelessness, by delaying my claim for 4 years.  When I finally did get benefits, it was too little too late.   It seems to me either that:

1.  VA did not care if I was homeless or

2.  They did not connect the dots, that, when I was unemployed seeking benefits, these delays meant I had no way to keep my home.  Keeping one's home requires an income.  I did not have an income.  

If the VA isnt there for the Veteran to prevent homelessness, then who's job is it?

Then I misunderstood your post as to why the VA would be involved in a local 1st Amendment issue. The veteran in the article is not homeless.

broncovet I would love to see the video. The problem is it takes you to a FOX News story about Black Powder coffee.
