For its second year, the Smoky Mountain Veterans Stand Down provided local veterans with needed services.

Last Thursday, veterans from across Western North Carolina gathered in the Robert C. Carpenter Community building and were met with community organizations who provided essential services ranging from haircuts to medial assistance.

The free, community-sponsored event was organized to give homeless, in need, or low-income veterans both short and long-term assistance. Veterans were greeted by volunteers and organizations who offered food, clothing, ministry, employment counseling, education services and medical and legal services.
