Chris Fee, English prof. and department chair at Gettysburg College, authored a piece on the homeless veterans that appeared in the Patriot-News on May 25. Fee often writes about issues related to poverty and homelessness. His seminar for first-year students on The Literature of Homeless includes a substantial service-learning component in Washington, D.C.
From the article:
Memorial Day is a day for remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.
As we gather around the grill with loved ones, let's also remember veterans who survived their term of service only to find themselves without a place of their own to celebrate holidays.
