Old shipping containers used to house homeless veterans

This past week, the new secretary of veterans affairs said his department will try to cut the number of homeless veterans in the U.S from about 40,000 to somewhere below 15,000 during the Trump administration. Carter Evans tells us about a project that is helping the VA reach that goal.
