As is customary among the Nassau County American Legion Family, a Stand Down was held for veterans just prior to Thanksgiving. The purpose is to provide food, clothing and information to struggling and homeless veterans on Long Island. This was held at the Freeport Armory and was supported by our American Legion Auxiliary Unit, the Columbiettes of St. Mary’s and various members of the Manhasset community. The veterans were provided with a hot Thanksgiving dinner at the Stand Down.
Thank you to everyone who made this event so successful. Several hundred veterans received assistance.
