The second annual Los Angeles Stand Down was held December 19-21 at the LA Convention Center. This year’s Stand Down was a huge success, adding more services and serving more veterans than the year before. Here are a few quick facts:
- Over 4,000 people attended on Saturday and Sunday
- Over 500 people attended the job fair on Monday
- More than 100 employers came to the job fair to meet with veteran job seekers
- On Saturday, the USC Mobile Dental Unit was able to help more than 150 veterans who needed dental exams and treatment
In addition, housing and legal services helped a steady flow of veterans, and the haircut/stylist area was packed all weekend.
Thank you to everyone who helped make the 2015 LA Stand Down such a success – please enjoy these pictures!
