STAND DOWN FOR VETERANS LOS ANGELES CONVENTION CENTER

We enjoyed this years Stand Down at the Los Angeles Convention Center where we had a table set up to assist veterans who could use a helping hand. We had fliers for free furniture from Patriots & Paws and promoted our program. We handed out about 150 American flag lapel pins and a bunch of other cool stuff that we were able to give away. We also took a bunch of care packages full of non-perishable items with the assistance from The Sunshine Club of Wilmington, California who also assisted us a couple of weeks back, we were able to take a bunch of care packages for homeless veterans who come to The Pier Center in Long Beach for assistance.

RYAN M. PITTS NINTH LIVING RECIPIENT OF MEDAL OF HONOR

LOS ANGELES HOMELESS CAPITOL OF AMERICA MANY OF THOSE HOMELESS ARE MILITARY VETERANS

RUSS REPORT - As we usher in 2013, the City of Los Angeles remains the homeless capitol of the nation. Veterans, by the thousands, still sleep on the dangerous streets every night. 

Building 209, a three story- 46,000 sq.ft. facility at the West LAVA, slated for renovation after eight years, will accommodate 65 veterans out of an estimated 8000 homeless veterans in Los Angeles. In 2004, Santa Monica Councilman Bobby Shriver proposed that buildings 205, 208 and 209 be used for permanent/ therapeutic housing but it was not until 2007 that the buildings were designated as such.

Finally, on December 3, 2012, VA Secretary General Eric Shinseki announced a contract had been awarded to Westport Construction Company in Arcadia, California, for $17,600,000 … ten million dollars more than originally projected in 2008. The renovations are not expected to be completed until 2014. Buildings 205 and 208 remain empty with no plan in sight for renovations. In fact, there are over one hundred buildings on the WLAVA campus that are vacant, closed or underutilized.

POSSESSIONS/BELONGINGS OF HOMELESS MANY OUR BRAVE VETERANS

 

run-for-the-wall-2013

RUN FOR THE WALL 25TH ANNIVERSARY
FREEDOM IS NOT FREE!

It was a nice warm Wednesday, morning, when 1,500 motorcycles and support vehicles rolled out of a parking lot in Rancho Cucamonga, California for a 10 day trip to Washington DC. Their journey is not a fun one but one to bring attention to the tragedy of war and our MIA/POW veterans.

From the shirt I am proudly wearing it states “Freedom Is Not Free” and that is important for everyone to remember. Lets say a prayer for these brave veterans on this ride/journey to Washington DC. For many men and women this is a yearly event they do proudly.

View video below of first group that left, this is the most organized event I have ever attended and probably the most challenging for those behind the scenes who make this Run For The Wall a success, going on 26 years now. Just a great group of people we can all support by donating or buying something at their website. (View More Pictures Click Here)
