DVNF Attends Operation Stand Down Event

The Disabled Veterans National Foundation (DVNF) wishes to congratulate

the organizers of “Operation Stand Down” in Nashville, the primary

nonprofit resource for veterans in Middle Tennessee. DVNF was honored to

be invited to participate in the event held October 22 to 24. At this

event, and the week prior in Knoxville, the DVNF distributed over

$343,000 worth of goods to area veterans.

“Being there, looking these brave men and women in the eyes, and

personally handing them goods DVNF made available was amazing,” said

Raegan Rivers, DVNF’s Chief Administrative Officer. “Hundreds of

veterans were on hand to receive aid.”

Operation Stand Down events take place in communities all across America

and typically run one to three days. They provide goods and services to

homeless veterans including food, shelter, clothing, health screenings,

VA and Social Security benefits counseling, employment and substance

abuse treatment. The first Stand Down event was held in 1988 by a group

of Vietnam veterans in San Diego and since then these events have

reached well over 200,000 veterans and their families. The term "Stand

Down" refers to the long-held tradition among military commanders to

provide for their troops a place of refuge in time of war.

“We are honored to be invited to these major veterans’ events,” said

Precilla Wilkewitz, President of the Disabled Veterans National

Foundation. “These events make a big difference in the daily lives of

veterans and we were proud to participate.”

To date, DVNF has provided goods and services to over 40,000 U.S.

veterans.

About the Disabled Veterans National Foundation

DVNF, a nonprofit 501c3, was founded in the fall of 2007 by six women

veterans to expand their scope of work within the veteran’s community.

The Trustees, with over twenty years of combined work focusing on issues

facing women veterans, realized the recent conflicts in Iraq and

Afghanistan brought forth a rising need to help returning wounded and

disabled veterans. To learn more about DVNF go to www.DVNF.org.
