Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans

I received an email this evening from a gentleman who pointed me to this web site. Sen. Obama, who helps garner support for the Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans, is seen on the home page in a welcoming video.

Obama says, "When 300,000 veterans are homeless on any given night in this country, it underscores the lack of fulfilling the mutual obligations that our government has promised to uphold. That is why I have made it a top priority to work on behalf of veteran's rights and benefits. The Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans will help take many veterans off the streets. Right now the number of homeless Afghanistan and Iraq war veterans is in the hundreds. That number will only grow. I encourage all citizens of the Metropolitan Chicagoland area to support The Midwest Shelter for Homeless Veterans so these men and women who have sacrificed so much for freedom and democracy can be assisted and treated with the dignity and respect they deserve."
