Veterans' Stand Down 2021

Two years ago, Leon County's annual Veterans' Stand Downs had been so effective in reducing the incidence of veteran homelessness that only about 100 people took advantage of the service showcase. But the intervening pandemic has meant an increase in both the number of homeless veterans and incidence of those at risk of homelessness. So the Veterans' Stand Down returns this year on August 6 and 7 at the Al Lawson Center on the FAMU Campus. To talk about it are: Event Coordinator Bill Eichhofer and Stand Down Founder Col. Washington Sanchez.
