18-19  Mar 2022   —  The Veteran Stand Down to Stand Up  (Formerly known as Stand Down) event was postponed due to COVID 19 in 2020/21. The VMC Boards and EXCOMM decided it was better to postpone the event until Mar 2022 due to uncertain COVID conditions that could impact such a large, indoor gathering. We hope many veterans, organizations and others will find ways in the meantime to help Homeless and at risk Veterans in Brevard County. Planning meetings begin in Early December  at the VMC. This event will focus on at risk veterans and matching them with job options on the Space Coast.
