Robert Van Keuren, US Navy veteran

US Navy veteran-turned housing visionary Robert Van Keuren, who flew over 200 combat missions in the Vietnam War, gave a speech and officially opened the Van Keuren Housing Complex last week.  He reminded the crowd that many of our veterans have been left unsheltered, and not necessarily homeless, since our country will always be their home.
