The dark humor on the "Dysfunctional Veterans" Facebook page amuses millions of vets every day. 

The page's founder, Michael Rivers, has built on the success of salty language and sarcasm and most recently created a farm that is literally saving the lives homeless, drug-addicted vets. 

Rivers knows all about being homeless- he was once a homeless drug addict himself.  "I did massive amounts of drugs, enough to put Keith Richards to shame," laughed Rivers.

He shared with Connecting Vets Reporters Kaylah Jackson and Phil Briggs the story of his self-medication, self-destruction and the experience that changed his life.
