15. That's what I thought...as far as the vacant properties. That sucks!

Never knew that about the revolutionary war. Very interesting and yes, there should be a program where veterans are given a house. They deserve it! Not to mention that a large part of the homeless population are vets, so the government should do that, since they already own the properties!

There is a movie called "It Happened on 5th Avenue", made in 1947 and part of the plot was about returning WWII vets and their families who were facing a housing shortage. The vets and their spouses were trying to buy a closed army base/barracks to help with the shortage, thought it was an interesting idea. I guess that was influencing me. Wish something like that could happen, but unfortunately, I'm just a dreamer.
