Country Fails in 'support' of Soldiers, Still No 'Sacrifice'!

Just like those 'magnetic ribbons' are long gone. Still wondering how the supply of 'purple heart bandages' are holding out, some had such a great time with those!

'This Week' Exclusive: Army Vice Chief of Staff General Peter Chiarelli

Dec 21, 2010 - This Sunday, during the holiday season, we honor the service and the sacrifice of the U.S. military and their families. "This Week" anchor Christiane Amanpour focuses on the unique challenges facing service members returning home from the frontlines.

Bob Woodruff begins our coverage with a special report on the growing number of veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan who find themselves homeless. According to the Veterans' Administration there are more than 9,000 men and women just back from fighting America's wars who find themselves homeless. Bob tells the stories of a decorated veteran who served two tours in Iraq and was homeless three days after leaving the military, and a single mom who also served two tours in Iraq and resorted to sleeping in cars when she became homeless. {continued}
