Stand-Down for Homeless Veterans Scheduled

The Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Association, a national, not-for-profit veterans’ advocacy organization, is sponsoring its Second Annual Stand-Down in the lower Hudson Valley region of New York.

A Stand-Down is an event that provides services to homeless and at-risk veterans of all wars and

all branches of the US Armed Forces.

Scheduled for September 12 and 13, 2013, The Tri-County Stand-Down (Ulster, Orange, and Sullivan Counties) is an outdoor event once again hosted by the Town of Wawarsing, NY at Lippmann Memorial Park.

The following services are planned for both male and female veterans:

 General Medical Screening by VA Health providers

 Eye examinations and Haircuts

 Access to Mental Health Services

 Veteran Housing information

 Local employment information

 New clothing for men and women

 Information related to counseling for physical and mental health issues

 Access to Applications for standard Veteran Benefits

 Local transportation from the three county regions to Wawarsing will be available at no cost to the veterans.

Veterans must show valid identification to be eligible for the services offered.

Preparation and execution of the Tri-County Stand Down event is partially funded by a United States Department of Labor grant awarded to the Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Association.

The percentage of the total costs of the project financed by a grant award (#SD-24845-13-60-5-8) from the US Department of Labor’s Veterans’ Employment and Training Service amounting to $10,000 is about twenty-six percent (26%) of the total project cost. The remainder will be covered by non-governmental and community-based sources throughout the Catskills Region.

Osceola's response to his people, the Seminoles, was

simply "They(the US Army)have guns, but so do we."

Sameo to us -They (VA) have 38 CFR ,38 USC, and M21-1- but so do we.
