Don't delay. Please send your donation in early and let's try to wrap this baby up by Thanksgiving!!

Click the donate link and make your donation count today!!

Drain the swamp and Make America Great Again!!

Prayers up for continuing progress and success.

FR is funded solely by contributions made by the liberty loving patriots who love and use it.

We are beholden to no political party.

No advertisers, no outsiders, no sugar daddies, no corporate string pullers.

Definitely no government subsidies or tax breaks. No 501c or other IRS non-profit status.

This means no commercial ads. No annoying pop-ups. No ad tracking. No mail campaigns. No spam. No third-parties -- not even the IRS -- trying to control what we do or say.

We are self-funded, fiercely independent and enjoy our freedom to speak plainly in the support of God, family, country, liberty!!

But we cannot exist without you.

Every donation counts no matter how big or small. If you can donate $5, $10, $20, $100 or more, it would be greatly appreciated.

Your loyal support makes Free Republic possible and your continuing participation makes FR the number one pro-God, pro-life, pro-family, pro-small government, pro-defense, pro-America conservative forum on the Net!!

And we're going to need FR now more than ever to combat the current crop of Marxists and progressives who have infested our government and public institutions and who are dead set on destroying the final remnants of our cherished constitution and our precious God-given liberty!!

Please click the secure server link above or donate by mail to:

Free Republic - PO Box 9771 - Fresno, CA 93794

Make it a Monthly if you can. We have some very generous FReeper sponsors kicking in an extra ten bucks for every New Monthly signed up. And we have 41 new monthly donors signed up so far this quarter!!

Or send in a hundred dollars or more per quarter and join I_be_tc's growing list of 300 Club patriots. I_be_tc sends in $100 per quarter and challenges 300 others to do the same. If we could get 300 FReepers to send in $100 per quarter, these FReepathons would complete much faster. And we have received 116 donations of $100 or more so far this quarter!!

Thank you all very much!!

God bless.

Homeless veterans in the United States

Veteran homelessness is not a phenomenon only of the 21st century; as early as the Reconstruction Era, homeless veterans were among the general homeless population. In 1932, homeless veterans were part of the Bonus Army. In 1934, there were as many as a quarter million veterans living on the streets. During the Truman Administration, there were one hundred thousand homeless veterans in Chicago, and a quarter that population of homeless veterans in Washington, D.C. In 1987, the number of homeless veterans was as high as three hundred thousand.

Estimates of the homeless population vary as these statistics are very difficult to obtain. In 2007, the first veterans of Operation Enduring Freedom - Afghanistan and Operation Iraqi Freedom, began to be documented in homeless shelters. By 2009 there were one hundred fifty four thousand homeless, with slightly less than half having served in South Vietnam. According to the VA in 2011, veterans made up 14% of homeless adult males, and 2% of homeless adult females, and both groups were over represented within the homeless population compared to the general population. The overall count in 2012 showed 62,619 homeless veterans in the United States of America. In January 2013, there were an estimated homeless veterans in the U.S., or 12% of the homeless population. Just under 8% are female. In July 2014, the largest population of homeless veterans lived in Los Angeles County, with there being over six thousand homeless veterans, part of the larger estimated fifty four thousand homeless within that area. In 2015, in a report issued by HUD, it counted over forty seven thousand homeless veterans nationwide, the majority of whom were White and male. In 2016, there were over thirty nine thousand homeless veterans nationwide.

The passing of the Greatest Generation

Approximately every three minutes a memory of World War II—its sights and sounds, its terrors and triumphs—disappears. Yielding to the inalterable process of aging, the men and women who fought and won the great conflict are now mostly in their 90s. They are dying quickly—at the rate of approximately 430 a day, according to US Veterans Administration figures.
Honoring the 20th-century veterans’ sacrifice before they pass from the scene is at the forefront of everything we do at The National WWII Museum—from our exhibits, to oral histories, to the Museum’s $370 million expansion, a lasting tribute to the Greatest Generation.
“There’s no time to lose,” said Gordon H. “Nick” Mueller, President and CEO of the Museum. “We want to be able to finish and dedicate our expansion while we still have members of the Greatest Generation to thank for their sacrifice and service to the nation and to show the world what they mean to the principle of freedom.”

"It is time for us to realize that we're too great a nation to limit
ourselves to small dreams. We're not, as some would have us believe,
doomed to an inevitable decline.

I do not believe in a fate that will fall on us no matter what we do.
I do believe in a fate that will fall on us if we do nothing.

So, with all the creative energy at our command,
let us begin an era of national renewal.
Let us renew our determination, our courage, and our strength.
And let us renew our faith and our hope. We have every right to dream heroic dreams.

Those who say that we're in a time when there are no heroes,
they just don't know where to look."

Ronald Reagan

“And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.”
