SNP MSP Christina McKelvie said the Armed Services Advice Project (ASAP) was "an inspired and inspiring service" which deserved the full support of the parliament, on 28 June 2012.
ASAP is delivered by Citizens Advice Bureaux (CAB) across Scotland and gives advice, information and support to the armed forces community.
Ms McKelvie said CAB were "a highly trusted network with decades of experience" and from July 2010 to March 2012 ASAP had 1769 clients with over 6,000 issues.
Conservative MSP Alex Fergusson said ex-serviceman were 10% more likely to be homeless in Scotland compared to rest of the UK.
Housing Minister Keith Brown said he would be interested in getting more information on Mr Fergusson's point.
Mr Brown said that veterans and those in the armed forces really appreciated that there was such a consensus in the Scottish Parliament on these issues.
He also said that ASAP was an excellent initiative from CAB and succeeded in doing exactly what it set out to do and should be commended.
