American workers beware. The North American Free Trade Agreement is a fraud ("The Dirty Little Trade Secret," Opinion, Sept. 27). It promises benefits for all. It will benefit only the elite.

SAN DIEGO - Kris Warren, a Marine veteran with combat duty in Iraq, remembers the disorientation and other problems that kept him from reentering civilian life.

Now, Warren, 36, is part of an innovative VA program set to begin in San Diego: a residential treatment facility exclusively for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans in danger of becoming homeless.
