    Fulltext.

    A cross-sectional survey of 1,431 homeless adults was conducted during the winter of 1989-90 at three shelters in Santa Clara County, CA, with a 98 percent response rate.

    Of the 1,008 U.S.-born men, 423, or 42 percent, were veterans, including 173 combat-exposed veterans and 250 noncombat-exposed veterans.

    There were 585 nonveterans.

    Both combat and noncombat-exposed veterans were significantly more likely to report excessive alcohol consumption before their initial loss of shelter than were nonveterans.
