November 1, 2018
Cheyenne Veteran Affairs in conjunction with the American Legion Post 6 recently held their annual Cheyenne Homeless Veterans Stand Down.
Members of Donald Eisenhauer American Legion Post 60, Pine Bluffs and American Legion Auxiliary Unit 60, and area American Legions participated in this event as well as numerous other entities.
Homeless veterans were able to get clothing, jackets, sleeping bags, their hair cut, and dental exams and much more.
Lunch was served for the veterans free of charge. Governor Mead was present and working the serving line, along with Major General Reiner and Stephen Kravitsky, Director Wyoming Veterans Commission. "The Homeless Veterans Stand Down event is a great way to help veterans who are struggling. Sometimes a hot meal, assistance with benefits or healthcare questions, or even just a conversation can make a difference. I am happy to help and thank everyone who works so hard to organize the event. I am proud, Wyoming is proud, our country is proud of our vets - we care deeply about them." stated Governor Mead.
Many veterans received information on services provided for veterans.
