November 11th is Veterans Day. Let’s take the time to remember the brave men and women who have served our country and honor those who serve us now.
Did you know that the largest population of homeless veterans live in Los Angeles? Just in Los Angeles there are over 8,000 veterans living on the streets. They don’t deserve to be hungry, homeless, without a job, or in need of services.
For thirty years New Directions, Inc. has provided transitional housing and comprehensive services for homeless veterans in Los Angeles County. At its annual fundraising dinner gala, I had the opportunity to meet Master of Ceremonies, Joe Mantegna. Besides being a talented actor and currently starring in the role of David Rossi in Criminal Minds, Joe Mantegna is a longtime military supporter. We salute your compassion and dedication.
Thank you veterans for your service and sacrifice to our great country. Be sure to watch the November 14th episode of Criminal Minds.
