Retired veterans are being forced out at AFRH

I am one of the retired enlisted veterans living here at Armed Forces Retirement Home in Gulfport and I am angry and disappointed over what is happening here. I feel that those of us who are having a hard time making ends meet are being forced out of our homes in order to open the facility to those more fortunate.
