Homeless Vets Getting Help in OKC

The Sooner Stand Down by The Homeless Alliance taking place on Thursday from 6am to 4pm is entering its ninth year.

Executive Director Dan Straughan says the goal of the Stand Down is to help get veterans back on their feet.

The term “Stand Down” originated during World War I when soldiers were pulled back from the trenches for physical and mental respite.
