U. S. Tour of Duty

A coalition known as the Bonus Army – comprised of 43,000 veterans, family members and supporters – gathered in Washington, D.C. in 1932 to demand immediate restitution for what soldiers could have earned had they not served in the military. For today’s veterans, the need for housing and supportive services is comparable to the need in the Depression era for prompt recompense. Inspired by the Bonus Army and fueled by arts and innovation, U.S. Tour of Duty is a cultural revival led by performers and other change agents who share a commitment to ending veteran homelessness by December 2015. So far over 200 American communities have joined the effort.
