Heart of America Stand Down for Veterans, November 13 

November 13, 2009
On Friday, November 13, after all of last week's Veteran's Day speeches were over, the Heart of America Stand Down Foundation (kcstanddown.org) hosted a day-long event where homeless vets could eat hot meals, pick up warm clothes and get haircuts and health screenings at Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kansas. We got there around 2 p.m., as things were winding down. Stand Down estimates that on any given night, there are 1,800 homeless vets in Kansas City.

The flag in front of Memorial Hall was still flying at half staff to honor Fort Hood's slain soldiers, a cruel irony all throughout this Veteran's week.
