“At VETS Canada, we are boots on the ground; locating homeless veterans and getting them off the streets and back on their feet. The Tour of Duty allows us to locate veterans in crisis from coast to coast while also raising awareness of the issue of veteran homelessness. We strive to build a better understanding of our mission within the larger community; that help is available. We are here to help “
