I think it's a good idea. But doesn't he have to get Congress and the Senate to go along with this?

I honestly think it is great. I have been volunteering since I was 14. Working with Veterans activities now and within a few public schools in my area. I wonder, will it be an expansion of programs already in place? Like I am already extremely active in the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans. I wonder if his programs incorporate already established programs or will it create additional programs that will need additional funding? I hope he utilizes some wonderful programs that are already in place and just gives them opportunity to get some exposure. It may even be less strart up costs for tax payers to fund.
