Small Study: Most Homeless Iraq, Afghanistan War Veterans May Have PTSD.

On its website, Salon (12/5, Lennard) reports that Yale University, using national administrative data from the Housing and Urban Development-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) program, discovered that the majority of homeless Iraq and Afghanistan veterans who reported combat exposure, have been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and “do not receive any” Veterans Affairs-service connected disability. Yale’s study, according to Salon, “assessed nearly 100 Iraq and Afghanistan vets.”
