Nursing Home Abuse is terrible whenever it happens, but when our own military veterans are abused it just doesn't get much worse than that. In light of recent news stories about our veterans being abused in nursing homes we have added a new section to our website on the specific topic of how nursing home abuse has affected our veterans. We hope to draw increased attention to this problem and do our part toward ending abuse of our veterans in nursing homes, as well as offer our website's helpful information to those affected by this tragedy.
