Mark is a homeless, disabled veteran. He doesn’t have ID nor is he able to get the records of his service. Mark says there was a fire in the VA’s main hall of records that destroyed most of his military history.

Mark survives by panhandling and playing the harmonica. He says that it’s challenging to keep anything when you live on the streets. The morning of this interview his bike was stolen.

Mark has been on the streets for 18 years! He says it’s getting harder to find places to sleep at night.
