The authors of the study estimate that 16,000 post-9/11 veterans will be discharged and make their homes in the region by 2020. Many veterans are finding work for the federal government or manufacturing, but neither sector has a strong presence in San Diego except for the military.
About 3,700 veterans find themselves without a home at least one night in any 12-month period, according to the report.
