    KSNV (Las Vegas) recently joined the U.S.VETS – Las Vegas outreach team as they offered help to homeless veterans. Nearly 900 homeless veterans live on the streets of southern Nevada – a number both shocking and heart breaking. Many suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder and other stresses of combat. For 10 years, U.S. veteran Deon Derby has been pounding the pavement with U.S. Vets, a non-profit group that offers housing, and support for those who served. The homeless camps dotting empty lots throughout the valley are where veteran Deon Derby spends much of his time searching for military veterans who may have slipped through the cracks… Click here for the rest of the story and to watch the video.
