Stand Down For Vets
Julie was honored to participate and provide acupuncture at the Stand Down For Vets event this summer. The National Coalition for Homeless Veterans(NCHV) is a leading authority on homeless veterans issues and organizes events nation-wide. NCHV (www.nchv.org) describes the Stand Down as:
“The original Stand Down for homeless veterans was 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.
That is the purpose of the Stand Down for homeless veterans, and achieving those objectives requires a wide range of support services and time. The program is successful because it brings these services to one location, making them more accessible to homeless veterans.”
