(Port Angeles) – A big happening for local veterans today.
A myriad of events and services for all veterans today as Voices For Veterans is held at the Clallam County Fairgrounds.
Starting at 9:00 this morning, the Clallam County Veterans' Stand Down will be open for all armed forces veterans.
Taken from a military term which means “Rest & Recuperation”, “Standing Down” means getting away from all military activity to be refitted, rejuvenated.
Today's Stand Down will include free services, including meals, haircuts, health screenings and more.
Free transportation to the event will be provided on both Clallam and Jefferson Transit buses.
Information about the Stand Down can also be found on the website, “Voices For Veterans.Org”.
