I love Operation Stand Nashville, Ink. over the years it has helped our homeless veterans to gain more respect for themselves. They supply our veterans with free haircuts, doctors visits, Dentist visits, food, clothes,and other items. They help to find home, jobs. This group in Nashville works very hard for our HEROs who have done so much for us. Thank you Operation Stand Down Nashville, and thank you for taking such good care of our HEROS!

Operation Stand Down is the best organization I am aware of for helping homeless veterans and other veterans in need. This organization consistently year after year continues to do excellent work in the greater Nashville area. As I have also done previously, Operation Stand Down has my highest recommendation. --Richard Aberdeen; Freedom Tracks Records, Nashville, Tennessee

Bill Burleigh of Operation Stand Down Nashville was more than willing to give me a personal tour of the facilities. Having lived in Nashville approximately six years now, it has been my consistent experience that Operation Stand Down Nashville is one of the best non-profits in the area. They make every effort to help homeless and impoverished veterans in need and I consider this organization to be a great blessing for the general Nashville area and community.

OSD is a very well run organization that positively impacts the lives of hundreds of veterans in our community. The staff is professional and hard working to ensure all donations are put to good use. The services offered by OSD provide opportunities to veterans that lead to substantial progress in re-entering the workforce or regaining the ability to live independently. Bill Burleigh and his staff have developed an outstanding nonprofit for the Middle Tennessee region.

I have had the opportunity to visit, donate and talk with volunteers, participants, and Colonel Bill Burleigh of Operation Stand Down Nashville, Tennessee. As a retired Marine, anything I can donate goes to OSDN because I know it will go to someone who can genuinely use it. The staff and leadership of OSDN is not only competenet and compassionate about what they do, but they are also always going to do the right thing. I believe we owe our veterans a debt and to ensure they receive what they deserve and any opportunity we can convey to them. OSDN ensures that happens and that the veterans they serve are well taken care of. Semper-Fi.

Operation Stand Down is a non profit that truly has the Veterans on their minds at all times. They are expertly run, and the operation is efficient and safe. They do an excellent job of including all Veterans and their staff is friendly and helpful. I am proud to have donated time and funds to their cause, and I only wish more non profits ran as well as Operation Stand Down Nashville. I highly recommend them!
