Add This to the Cost of War

In case you missed it, this segment on '60 Minutes', is at one and the same time, heart rending and encouraging.

It's heart rending, because its terrible to know that we treat our veterans - those whom we are currently extolling for their heroism and patriotic sacrifice - like this. In an effort to deflect evade guilt, some will immediately talk about access to services, whereabouts of family, personal or responsibility and veterans they know (perhaps veterans themselves), who had a terrible experience but weathered the storm.

I hope while we're busy enumerating the reasons for leaving untold numbers of men and women who have served our country on the streets, we don't forget another cause...
