Homeless Vets?

Classical Values posts about something I've long wondered - are most homeless people who claim to be vets, actually, well, vets at all?
What percentage of beggars claiming to be Vietnam veterans are fakes? Nearly all of them. According to a survey by the Vietnam Veterans of America, over 90% of street beggars claiming to be Vietnam veterans are fakes.
I suspect that we will see the same thing long after the Iraqi War is over.
