Today was the Veteran Stand Down event in Aberdeen. The South Shore Mall was alive with community spirit and the outpouring of appreciation these folks have for their veterans. Barb set up a terrific table representing the Grays Harbor Brain Injury Support Group and we had many opportunities to meet people and connect with vets. Many state agencies and local organizations provided resources and much needed items free to homeless veterans.

Partner with the American Legion and others to start one. We all know there are homeless Veterans in every community that need our support.
