The notion of a Stand Down came from combat infantry units during Vietnam who saw days and days of battle action and were told to move to the rear for a brief "Stand Down" from combat to get a shower, eat some hot chow, clean weapons, etc. They were not on leave and life was still tough but they got help as needed from haircuts to medical treatment and knew others cared before they headed back to the daily battles they faced.
The Stillwater VFW Post 2027 is having a Memorial Stand Down in honor of SFC William R. Breese on January 19, 2019 where they will be contacting and identifying all veterans in the Stillwater area to help them with veteran services. Representativs from all services will be present.
