Chapter 9 provided support the Vancouver, WA Clark County Veterans Coalition in Sept during the Stand Down. We have participated every year since 2007 (or 8 if memory serves me.) We directed traffic, assisted with unloading providers gear, passing out clothes, along with providing approx a dozen boxes of garments and shoes, and assisted with gear distribution to homeless Vets at the "DoD Tent" where surplus DoD Items such as sleeping bags, boots, military garments are provided. Goods and services were provided to 97 homeless Vets and about 1,000 Vets and family members showed up.

We also assisted with the Stand Down in Kelso, WA. A much smaller event, but equally important.
