Stark County Veteran Stand Down 
Thursday, November 2, 2017

Local, State and Federal Veteran Services
All In One Location At The Same Time

The Stand Down for veterans will be modeled after the Stand Down concept used during the Vietnam War to provide a safe retreat for units returning from combat operations. At secure base camp areas, troops were able to take care of personal hygiene, get clean uniforms, enjoy warm meals, receive medical and dental care, mail and receive letters, and enjoy the camaraderie of friends in a safe environment.

Stand Down afforded battle-weary soldiers the opportunity to renew their spirit, health and overall sense of well-being. We will offer our veterans an opportunity to come together, relax and receive the benefits they have earned.
