Veterans Stand-Down

A Veterans Stand-Down is scheduled for Thursday, August 27th - registration begins at 9 a.m. 

A report by the Department of Veterans Affairs along with the Department of Housing and Urban Development, says that while veterans make up only 10 percent of the population, they account for 16 percent of all homeless adults.

Stand Downs are typically one- to three-day events providing supplies and services to homeless Veterans, such as food, shelter, clothing, health screenings and VA Social Security benefits counseling. Veterans can also receive referrals to other assistance such as health care, housing solutions, employment, substance use treatment and mental health counseling. They are collaborative events, coordinated between local VA Medical Centers, other government agencies and community-based homeless service providers.

2011 Post #9 Honor Guard

The Bismarck AMVETS Honor Guard is there to honor veterans of the Amy, Navy, Air force, Marines, or Coast Guard who are laid to rest at the Veterans Cemetery near Mandan, North Dakota. Post #9 honors these service men and women for their duty and service to this nation.

This is just one of the many duties our Honor Guard performs continually throughout the year.

God Bless our service men and women, past and present. The Bismarck AMVETS salutes and thanks you.
