Malachowski, who flew combat missions in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, now serves as the executive director of Joining Forces, an initiative by Michelle Obama and Jill Biden to support military families.
10/03/2015 - From 2007 to 2010, Army veteran David Rice lived in his car, a temporary house or on the street.
Like many others who served in the military, he was highly trained and accustomed to being self-sufficient. He didn't want to admit he was homeless or ask for help.

The summit brought together representatives of the Department of Veterans Affairs and Santa Clara County, veterans, and nonprofit organizations that are working to improve access to health care and housing for the homeless. Panelists offered a snapshot of homelessness in the county, with an emphasis on the challenges of helping veterans.
