If you know any military veterans, this event is for them. Imagine if you will, services that are normally spread out over the County and points beyond, all brought together in one convenient location.
DMV, medical, tax help, insurance issues, banking, the courts and justice system, information on benefits for surviving wives of veterans and more.
There will be food at the kitchen, a BBQ with tri-tip, free haircuts, help for pets of veterans including food and boarding for the three day event.
Some vets sleep in bunks but some choose to put up a tent and have a camp fire. Still others just stop by for a day and see if there are some services or benefits they were unaware of that might be of help to them.
For some, it's 3 days off the streets with showers and food and somewhere to sleep.
For info on V.A. benefits, vets are asked to bring their DD214. That's a DD two fourteen not two one four as I have been corrected. This will enable volunteers to get paper work moving faster and have better access to know what you might be entitled to.
The North Coast Stand Down starts this Friday, October 2nd. at 8:00 am. and goes through
12-noon Sunday October 4th.
Ferndale Fairgrounds, Ferndale California.
Transportation can be arranged for you if you can't get there.
If you know of any vets that could use some help, this is your chance to help them get it.
