Veterans find help at annual Portland Stand Down

Portland-area veterans can get help from Transition Projects, the state Department of Veterans Affairs and others during Thursday’s Veterans' Stand Down.

The Stand Down is from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 11 at the Oregon Army National Guard’s Kliever Armory, 10000 N.E. 33rd Drive. The event includes employment support services, flu shots, dental screenings and massage for low-income and homeless veterans.

Banfield Pet Hospital will also provide wellness exams and vaccines for pets belonging to the veterans.

The event is free and open to all veterans and their families.

Transition Projects serves more than 9,000 people each year and helps veterans and their families in Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas and Clark counties.
