Homelessness in Hawaii

I had the chance a few weeks back to meet with Secretary Donovan (from HUD), who is on the President's Cabinet; Hawaii's two senators; Senators Akaka and Inouye; Governor Neil Abercrombie, and Mayor Carlise of Honolulu, to discuss homeless veterans. I've included a picture of myself with Senator Akaka and Secretary Donovon.

It's fantastic that folks at such high levels of the government are so deeply committed to the issues of homeless veterans. In addition, I was very impressed just how knowledgable and concerned they were with the veterans and curious to know what specific actions are being undertaken to help get veterans off the street. Makes me proud to be an American.
