During times of war, "stand down" refers to a period of rest and recovery for combat units away from the battlefield. The three-day community-based VVSD Stand Down is held to assist homeless veterans and their families. The intervention program assists participants with getting back into society, regaining their lives and jobs. This year, VVSD and volunteers supported 829 veterans and their children, a total of 968 participants.

"Northrop Grumman continues to support active military and veterans through organizations such as the Veterans Village of San Diego, the USO and our company program, Operation Impact," said Jim Zortman, sector vice president and site manager, Unmanned Systems Center of Excellence, Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems. "It is critical to support these programs to ensure that our nation's heroes receive the care and treatment they deserve. Coming together as a community brings greater awareness to their needs in an effort to provide yearlong support."

The first VVSD Stand Down took place in 1988, when volunteers served more than 650 homeless veterans. More than 200 such events now take place annually countrywide.

Northrop Grumman is a leading global security company providing innovative systems, products and solutions in unmanned systems, cyber, C4ISR, and logistics and modernization to government and commercial customers worldwide. Please visit www.northropgrumman.com for more information.
