Homeless Vets In Province Getting Help

A new programme officially launched by the Royal Canadian Legion's New Brunswick Command to help get homeless vets off the streets called "Operation Leave the Streets Behind".

Provincial president Rick Love says the program has already helped six veterans in the province. They range in age from 76 to 27 and three other cases are being worked on.

The veterans get help with rent, food vouchers and medical assistance paid for by the Legion's poppy programme.
