  • Thanks for sharing this information Kym.

    I’ve been involved with Stand Down since the start in 2006 (doing PR), but haven’t been active these last two years for a multiude of reasons. For example, it’s difficult for me to be around large crowds with my PTSD.

    I’m just happy to see the program continues to “Give a Hand Up – Not a Handout” to our veterans who need it.

  • Here’s an excellent opportunity to help homeless vets in a meaningful way. No rhetoric, just positive results. Thanks for your service, to all veterans.

  • I believe the Veteran is Gene Womak

  • Thanks for posting it, Kym. It’s odd that a nation with a military budget as big as ours that any vet should ever want for shelter, food or medical attention.

  • That was Gene at this years Redwood Run. He’s also the Bugler for the Honor Guard.
