810 Vermont Avenue to be on sale Monday

On October 4, 2012, three veterans knocked on the door of The Department of Veterans Affairs in Washington DC seeking someone to talk to about the erosion of veteran benefits.

A bureaucrat told them to wait; someone would be down to talk to them in a moment.

They are still waiting and “810 Vermont” documents their wait through the end of November.

On sale in time for Christmas, the profits from the sale of the book will be shared with the veterans to help them get the supplies they need.

Homeless individuals make special challenges on the vets holding the vigil

Many of the homeless in Washington D.C. have mental health and/or substance abuse issues.  An addendum to the book “810 Vermont Avenue” takes a look at what the few veterans left are doing to cope with the demands of the mentally ill homeless population.
