Veterans Stand Down 2020 Announcement
March 9, 2020

Due to the Coronavirus Disease 2019, U.S.VETS – Las Vegas announces the postponement of the 2020 Veterans Stand Down which was to take place on March 25, 2020.  This decision was made with careful consideration and concern for the health and well-being of our community – the veteran attendees, volunteers, service providers, our staff and the many partners it takes to host an event of this nature.

U.S.VETS – Las Vegas is honored to be the host of this annual event, and recognizes the great need to bring resources together for veterans in the unique way that a Stand Down does.  We apologize for this change in plans, but sincerely hope you will join us in the future when the event is rescheduled.

Registered service providers and volunteers will be notified of this postponement via email and phone over the next few days. All related planning meetings are cancelled going forward. We thank the community for your support of this event, and for your patience and understanding.  Future updates will be provided as our plans to reschedule are completed.

Thank you.
