Veterans Benefits Expo targets homeless and at risk veterans
MORRIS -- During the Vietnam War, troops would pull back to a safe retreat during combat operations to stand down.
During a stand down, soldiers had the chance to take care of necessities – get a haircut, eat a hot meal, collect and send mail and relax in a safe and secure environment.
Since 1988, advocates for homeless veterans have used the concept of a stand down to organize events to provide a range of services for veterans in need in one place.
