In this day and age of so many veteran charities out there and with most of those being a cover to enrich the officers of the charity, we must be beware of who we give to. I can personally vouch for the honesty of this organization. I am not a member of this organization, but have assisted them in the past. I also have been the State Commander of the Military Order of the Purple Heart (a veteran's organization composed of only Purple Heart Veterans) for the state of Tennessee 4 times and I raised funds for them and even assisted in improving some of their homes for the homeless veterans, both male and females. I, myself rate them as the best veteran charity in Tennessee and would even place them above the known national veteran's charities to receive any donation and assistance that a person/organization has or can do.

I have an indirect link to a story about this group. I was the Patroit Guard Riders ride captain for a Vietnam Vet's funeral in Jackson TN. One of their clients was our honoree that day. Michael had been homeless for many years. months prior to his death, he had been working with OSDN and had found employnment a home and more important, reconciled with his family. Had it not been for Operation Stand Down NASHVILLE- Michael most likely would have spent his last days in a vacant lot tent city too weak to fend off the predatory efforts of others. Instead, he was in a hospital and the woman who loved him at his side. His family felt like things had turned for him and he had made ammends never knowing he was going to be sick and die when he did. Michael is not the only story of success, but the only one I have first hand knowledge of. I am proud to be PGR and that PGR has partnered with this organization on a state wide level. I wish we could get one started here in Jackson TN and Memphis regions! I would surely take an active role!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

caring, supportive and very positive thinkers.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

build housing for our home less vets, allow them stability, and oh man what a dream it would be if 10 million was theirs! I can't even imagine the impact that kind of cash would have- such great things are done with small amounts but 10 mil? WOW
