The Veterans Awareness Center Foundation hosted its 10th annual Delaware Veterans’ Stand Down Sept. 21 at Schutte Park in Dover, Delaware.
More than 150 organizations provided services such as medical, dental and legal services to Delaware veterans in need.
“Veterans once set off to serve their communities,” said Chief Master Sgt. Bryan Ford, 512th Maintenance Squadron superintendent and the event’s volunteer coordinator. “At the very least, we can enrich their lives by reconnecting with the communities that offered them up.”
As a volunteer, Ford, who is a Dover Air Force Base reservist, helped coordinate the logistics for this year’s Veterans’ Stand Down by putting together a team of volunteers with particular skills and mapping out the event’s layout. More than 30 base reservists volunteered for the stand down event.
