Operation Stand Down is an effort focused on support to homeless veterans. It started in San Diego, CA 23 years ago and is replicated in various formats around the country. It is a 2 or 3 day opportunity for homeless veterans to gather and get help in a variety of ways. The attached video report from CBS’s 60 Minutes explains it well. Congregations are encouraged to check their local communities for a similar event and consider being a part of the activities. It is an excellent way to directly support veterans with all kinds of help, make contacts, and see the face of Christ.
