Former Army Sgt. Dennis Anderson, a homeless veteran, signs up as he gets a slice of pizza that was handed out from the Little Caesars Love Kitchen, a mobile pizza kitchen, in front of the Department of Veterans Affairs building September 17, 2007 in Washington, DC. The Love Kitchen was in town to provide hot pizza meals to homeless people including homeless veterans. Little Caesar's founder Michael Ilitch was awarded with the Secretary's Award Monday by the Department of Veterans Affairs to recognize his support of veterans.

The Department of Veterans Affairs is making the fight against veteran homelessness a top priority, with a goal of putting an end to it over the next two years.

Tommy Sowers is one of the people tasked with making that goal a reality. He was sworn in last summer as the Assistant Secretary for Public and Intergovernmental Affairs at the US Department of Veteran's Affairs.

Sowers is in Los Angeles today to meet with several veterans organizations, and joins "Take Two" live in studio.
