rain, sleet and snow to enjoy ice-
cold beer and lukewarm burgers.
Tailgating is as American as
apple pie and just as predictable.
How many ways can you grill up
burgers and hot dogs? What else
can you stick in the old wash pot?
With a little ingenuity and cre
ativity, plain old burgers and dogs
can take on new life.
Instead of dishing up hamburg-
ier, serve veal or spicy meatball
Instead of beer, serve up a few

WASHINGTON - A third of
liomeless men seeking shelter
are veterans, mostly combat
veterans from the Korean,
Vietnam or the Persian Gulf
Conflicts, according to a
yeterans Day survey released

Rydman said that what used
to be called “shell shock” and is
now referred to as post-trau
matic stress syndrome sets in
at different times, accounting
for the continuing flow of
Vietnam veterans into missions
20 years after the war.
The survey of 11,000 men
seeking shelter in 58 missions

Stephen Burger, executive
director of the missions, said
Vietnam veterans continue to

“We’re still getting new

Burger said. “That should be a
little shocking to us.”
“They didn’t come back and
become homeless. They came
back and became part of the
community, and then things
happened that made them
become homeless,” he said.
“Many of these people are
struggling with identity. They
are struggling with guilt.”
