Be warned, reading the article below will make you angry. The conditions these men, these veterans, live in is just unforgivable. It saddened me to read this, not only as an Indian, but as an American.You can read more about Cpl. Jones here

These brave men and women have given their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.
