Did you know that “Stand Down” is a common military term? The Arizona Coalition to End Homelessness (AZCEH) said it best, “a Stand Down is a brief period of time for a soldier to leave an active combat area, to rest and regain strength before returning to battle.” The Arizona Stand Down has become an annual event that does exactly that for our local homeless veterans. The event has been running for more than a decade, and one can easily see the need growing. In 2009, the turnout for help was under 750 Veterans. This year on February 14th and 15th, they are expecting to touch the lives of at least 1,400 homeless Veterans. The StandDown will be held at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum at the Arizona State Fairgrounds in Maricopa County.
