“I had a family but they were more or less trying to tell me to do something on your own. It wasn’t a happy situation. My wife divorced me. My children are already grown up.”
I’m 66 years old. I was drafted My 6, 1970. I served in the Army National Guard, Army Reserve. I’m a Vietnam veteran. So, basically been able to fend for myself over the years. That’s why I didn’t have any problems when I was in the streets. I could survive. I protected myself by staying away from a lot of people. I find food by going to shelters through the churches. There’s no problem in Pittsburgh when it comes to eating. You don’t have any money you can at least eat. Place to sleep, lot of areas in the summer, winter you provided through the shelters.
I had a family but they more or less trying to tell me do something on your own, wasn’t a happy situation. My wife divorced me. My children are already grown up. They got through college and got good jobs. I don’t expect them to help me. I get a social security check. That’s enough.
