State honors homeless veteran program
ST. PAUL -- Veterans are homeless in larger numbers than other Minnesotans, and Durbin Keeney does not like that.
"These are the ones who raise their right hands..." Durbin said Monday, when the state honored the Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans. "They are willing to come home in a body bag, but not willing to come home homeless."
Keeney directs the council's Duluth-based region that serves 38 counties across northern Minnesota.
