9:13 am
a little broken you know and for everybody really i mean it's a life changing experience that's what boot camp is all about they take away your individual ism and they train all that stuff out of you see don't question orders they're leaving you know such a structured environment and then thrown into you know life that's been going on for four years without them or longer you know and that's scary and intimidating and they don't know how to cope and that's why a lot of them turn to drugs or turn to whatever it is they don't know how to fit in anymore i feel like the real problem is no out training that makes sense you know particularly with our military people now you know they're being trained to such a high degree to go over and fight they go over there they do their job and then they're out one day and why have you know how somebody supposed to flip that switch

9:15 am
would have done i never saw another job that that i could have done that i would have done. and when we get a ambushed and they'd be shoot medicine and stuff i would use my rifle to big noise just. as scare off but i didn't want her to. mostly since they are not men do defects p.t.s.d. and depression and a lot of you have your own about aswell and it's common to all of us. this my son jack. to seek to be.

9:18 am
end in order to function in combat and you know this a rational response would be to get the hell there but we cannot be rational so we have to set aside our rational human response and then having cut all those feelings all you know your sense to it because if you don't you just start screaming that one day and the middle of it and you won't stop i went out to a track in two thousand and nine and we got bombed every thursday they went la beouf and broccoli rock rock around is more around whatever happened one night one of those rounds hit three four guys and. i think one of them survived i really remember because kind of burnt my memory with math and everything turned forget about it but. we lost three three guys three m.p.'s.
9:19 am
he talked about numbness. and i got back i had no fear period i know i was not afraid of anything i want to do that in the middle of the night and i care trying to get some weed to you know to calm me down and held it none of this. with with the use using and with. not having a whole that done it big boy. i could've made it well if i use the unemployment because i got employment for two years i would use it right instead of using it to suicide my my fears my you might my feelings very much. i could have went somewhere but i didn't i just explained it that. i've been here almost ninety days now the twenty third of this month the nineteenth what i'll be asking
9:20 am
for an extension because i can i can't trust myself to go out there i go for the holidays i need to go through that go through the holiday here in the r.c. and. i just thank god for each one of my bets with regards to whether you're an army navy coast guard they're not marines that ask you up all right here. when i actually came here and i mean yeah that person scary situation and the diversity here is you know we have straight and we have gay and we have transgender and i'm actually gay veteran and also came out with. my h.i.b. status i'm a chubby positive and. you know that day acceptance from the group was very much overwhelming and.
9:21 am
they opened up arms and you know they offered words of encouragement that was actually remarkable. we become so rich that we could get any. career peer or love in their day that. it is true. you know every veteran out there is one of my brothers and sisters. i want to be there for him you know it's all my my my vet's all the time i said look you know i'm i'm not a social worker by nature. a fool. was . it sounds harsh but by and large i don't really care about the average person out there. but i do this because
9:22 am
i love it. oh where do. all
9:23 am
the program is designed it's a thirty bed transitional program for homeless vets and so yes they all had to been homeless and all that friends like you are going to their goal self-sufficient income so we help them apply for benefits we help them go back to school or get employment. morning or you. interventions difference to their needs are different and so we're able to treat them to the root issues whether it's addiction whether it's mental health. or you're either. going to everywhere. no duty to meet my roommates man so let me say maybe on over. to them early. he's just five three and were and five miles in raised to get sleep in.
9:24 am
my readjustment derby's unreal. the way of life for the marines. just as it makes the society. so we're learning how to just. like and maybe i'm relationship with my. children that's why it's. not simpler it doesn't turn destructive. like good morning to you yeah every morning. that's i see what i do guy right now when he first came in here he was with me i thought he needed medication back because he was gay how he would if he was having a real bad time and a counselor was in session with somebody so i can get the cows are out of the office i thought roger was going to get his truck and leave. that you know yeah yeah well you had to leave now to get it only took two weeks of two and two weeks
9:25 am
he was calm down it was amazing it was. not going to swab the floor the navy guys would be good to get. their call swaby he's. the one thing i'd like to highlight optically with the new veterans coming into these programs is that it is a program so you don't run shelters you know this isn't a mission. it's a man supportive housing program. everybody takes turns doing chores and somebody has been living on the street for fifteen years clean the kitchen. a lead experience but it's something that they all have to do like it or to teach that.
9:26 am
i don't know i don't know how to say it but there's just i love this place you know i wish everybody could experience this. this is my car in the end my wife lived in this car. it's not a good place to live but i guess it beats the street. you know let me show you where i was living. it was basically. sit like this and put the seat. where is it right here all the way back and this is this is the position we slept in and i would have sleeping bag pulled up over me and my pillow
9:27 am
behind my head bit as you could see i'm not burkle or horizontal. so i wasn't i mean you try to turn over and you just get more uncomfortable and that's why they all called him and you know you drink enough are you just pass them out a way to do that and you wake up in the morning so or you know new do you start today all over again doing the same thing trinket so you wouldn't have to feel anything when you when you try had to crawl back in this thing and sleep in it the end i think happened in the mcdonald's parking lot and i stopped getting i try to use more drugs and they just wouldn't work. and it's like lex that something outside of myself said that's enough now it's a veterans' resource center and things have just been going good sense and you know i completed i did everything i needed to do. to do the right thing you know to
9:28 am
get help. and now this car is just a reminder of what i'm done with. today like this so good. we're going to hang on to what i get. a leg and go. sit in a fried chicken. let me go is. he going. to be a feast or what. but when it's so. easy to get big fish. it's just sure if you see circumstances where you can say. i've seen circumstances in which the client didn't want to be
9:29 am
saved somebody will decide. her winner or alcohol was much more important at that moment and then we just hope that we left enough of an impression that at some point they'll be ready for hoping to come back again. never turn her back on a veteran and we're not going to do it today hopefully some day they'll all come back. i have just how i am. a veteran of two branches i did six years active duty in the navy is a summer technician from there i went into the naval reserves that i completed i went into the army national guard which i am still hurt currently serving and. at a total of fourteen years now for the car they work as a player in just six ive periods i swear i have a substance abuse problem that i have about all that and get over here which was
9:30 am
hard but i've done it now and again and this last time was a lot harder but at least i was able to. bounce back from it all. and since then have been trying to find income to help kind of move forward. remember we have to cross over into it a creek area. and give you a heads up. your whole day isn't compassed with doing nothing but surviving that foothold to go around to look for housing or to look for jobs it becomes much harder because you're more focused on where am i going to get my next meal. or how am i going to get to these free services or how my going to these third beings. and then to think about where is our next hour. hi jean you look homeless and your clothes are all dirty in stuff
9:31 am
like that you can't better even if you walk to change. from some other stories that make a difference regan. is here with the platform where i stayed. with my boyfriend back couple of their neighborhood so to say. this is our tank can prove there's a profit that i think is also very very emotional to hear good ventilation and then there's them our friend vicki is were there frank kenyon they stay on here with us but that's generally where i say ran off of a freeway in the woods so welcome to woods.
