Camp Bravo

A place on Tucson’s south side, where homeless vets are sheltered, nourished and protected.

Tucson's Camp Bravo provides a safe place for homeless veterans.

It is estimated that 22 American veterans take their own lives each day. Many military veterans are now homeless and living on the streets. We visit a piece of land near Santa Rita Park, on Tucson’s south side known as Camp Bravo, where homeless vets are sheltered, nourished and protected. Through donations from the community, veterans at Bravo and other homeless people are being served by Veterans on Patrol.

Originally aired in November 2016, Camp Bravo won the 2017 Emmy® from the Rocky Mountain Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Science in the category of Societal Concerns – Program Feature/Segment/Program Special
