Friends of Howard a few vets back, Elijah said being a homeless vet is one that he doesn’t wish on anyone. He had so much anger and frustration at seeking help through the local support channels for vets and not receiving what he requested. He said after fighting a system that isn’t in place for success he says all you care about is survival. He said him and Howard are brothers in survival on the streets. Elijah was a radio operator in the Army and said that he’s been on the streets 15 yrs.
