Click on any of the included links and sources for details and statistics about homeless veterans.  The numbers you will see, will greatly vary from source to source, that’s why our focus is on the number “1*”.  No matter what the actual homeless numbers may be, they are “*One Too Many”.

Bush painted for Portraits of Courage, his recent book and accompanying special exhibit at the Bush Center in Dallas. We offer this interview as a way to help other post-9/11 veterans deal with post-traumatic stress, traumatic brain injury, and other invisible wounds of war.

No direct methods were used in this study, just critiques and observations about various war films
