Debbie Bowman, who served 12 years in the Army, works the front 

Debbie Bowman, who served 12 years in the Army, works the front desk at the Allied Veterans Center in Jacksonville, Fla., on Thursday, March 14, 2013. Bowman has been living at the shelter for homeless veterans since August. She says she lived in her car for a year before that. The center may be forced to shut down because its main source of funding was Allied Veterans of the World, which has had its leaders arrested and assets seized in an illegal gambling investigation.
