On Saturday, January 28, 2017, Skydiving Innovations was privileged to perform the flag jump for the opening ceremonies of the very first North San Diego County Veteran Stand Down, held at Green Oak Ranch in Vista, CA.
“Stand Down is a military term designating that a combat unit has temporarily moved out of the field and back to base camp for rest and rehabilitation.
“Homeless veterans are, in some ways, comparable to soldiers in a war zone – living exposed in the field, surviving by their wits with limited rations and enduring extreme conditions. Today, Stand Down refers to a time when our homeless veterans can remove themselves from the combat of the street.”
We urge you to support this important organization in any way you can. https://ncstanddown.org/
