“It was bad during the war, and it’s bad now,” says Leonardo, a Vietnam veteran talking about living homeless in Los Angeles.
Leonardo says he was once in VASH (Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing) housing, but he made a mistake and got a roommate to save money. The roommate created a lot of trouble, which caused Leonardo’s current state of homelessness!
Leonardo is a soldier. He’s going to keep fighting, but what bothers him the most is that people treat him like he’s nothing, not knowing that Leonardo fought for this country with his own life!
“I’m 68 years old. I’m a Vietnam veteran. I fought in the war and I am fighting now for my very life” ~ Leonardo
