MLSA AmeriCorps members will attend the Libby Veteran Stand Down on Saturday, October 3, where they will provide general legal information, self-help resources, and legal referrals to attendees. The Stand Down will take place at the VFW Post 1548, at 110 W. 2nd Street.
Veteran Stand Downs provide veterans with life resources such as food, clothing, healthcare, legal help, job counseling, etc.
Vietnam veterans Robert Van Keuren and Dr. Jon Nachinson held the first Veteran Stand Down in 1988 in the city of San Diego. Since then, Stand Downs have grown in popularity, and events are now held in hundreds of locations across the nation every year.
