This is na goodn first step hiowever it should only be considerd a first step. Memorials and grave yards do not help vets that are hungry and homeless. We need a stet Commissioner that has current ideas and not ones that help the dead. I think they should fire the entire senior staff and start again but this time find real vets that have been ther and not your buddy that wants a good paying job.
