    A lot of career soldiers, they don't have any other job skills, other then war, outside the army there is very little need for professional warriors, except for police force or body guards. Most vet that do well after coming home, are those who was drafted or serve in the reserves, rather then been a full time soldier, because these people have other skills, which they can use, outside the military.

    There should be available housing and some type of training for them. Instead of standing on the streets asking for money and food.

      Some countries are doing that, at Taiwan for example people who served over 10 years, if having no qualification, after leaving, can go to university pay by government. Australia got charity to help vet to gain skill set, to survive outside army.
