Louisville announces end to veteran homelessness

The federal government has announced that the city of Louisville has become the first in the state to eradicate veteran homelessness.
    
U.S. Housing and Urban Development regional administrator Ed Jennings told a crowd gathered in downtown Louisville for a Veterans Day parade that the city housed more than 400 veterans in the last year.
    
Mayor Greg Fischer was the first in Kentucky to sign up for President Barack Obama’s call to end homelessness among veterans.
    
Gov.-elect Matt Bevin, a Republican who bashed Obama’s presidency during his campaign, praised the Democratic mayor’s success in implementing the program and pledged to spread it across the state.
    
Bevin said he plans to make Kentucky "a beacon to the rest of America" and "honor veterans like we have never honored veterans before."
