JASONVILLE, Ind. (WTHI) - Nationwide, thousands of veterans are homeless.
It's also a local problem.
That's why one group is working to bring awareness to the issue and offer support.
Post 172 Auxillary members in Jasonville are sleeping in a "box city" outside the legion building.
They got there at 8 Saturday evening, and will be at the legion until about 8 Sunday morning.
News 10 stopped by to check things out.
Organizers said they're just glad to be able to give back.
"The homeless veterans are not recognized enough, and there's a lot out there. Like I said, we don't know who they are, or where they're at, but we know they're out there," said Luann McDonald.
Donations are welcome, and the money will be used to help homeless veterans.
