What's This?

I wish I could say that stories about Vietnam veterans dying homeless are rare, but unfortunately they’re not. However, paying this kind of tribute to a man who spent the last years of his life on the street certainly is.

John Beard fought tougher battles after he returned from the Vietnam than he did overseas, and even though he was overlooked and forgotten by his government he wasn’t forgotten by his community. After he passed away from cancer the people who knew what an amazing person he was organized a send-off worthy of the American hero he was.
