The camaraderie was apparent in Friday and Saturday’s Las Vegas Veterans Stand Down at the Abelino Montoya Recreation Center. Veterans, family members of veterans and numerous volunteers gathered to distribute clothing and other goods to homeless veterans and their families. A couple hundred people attended the event coordinated by veteran organizations and the local Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter.
“The stand down was a success,” Local Veterans Service Officer and Navy veteran, Karen Abeyta said. “I want to thank all the people and business that made donations and volunteered their time to help our veterans in need.”
