Navajo Veterans Face Dire Housing Shortage

The L.A. Times looks at the poor housing conditions of Navajo military veterans:

Nearly 9,000 military veterans live on the reservation that straddles the New Mexico-Arizona border, more than half of them in what the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs says is substandard housing.

Federal veterans' home loan guarantees cannot be used to build homes on tribal land.
