The annual Homeless Veterans Stand Down is being held August 2, 2018 – August 4, 2017. This three day event consists of a Personal Care Day, Homeless Veterans Job Fair, and Homeless Veterans Stand Down.

The City of Jacksonville Military Affairs and Veterans Department is preparing to receive the torch from the "keepers of the flame," the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans. Jacksonville has been entrusted with providing a place of sanctuary for Veterans who call the streets of Jacksonville home. 

The "Stand Down" is a time in which combat regiments returning from the theater of war were placed in safety zones. During the Stand Down, troops could put down their weapons and concentrate on personal matters such as sending and receiving correspondence to family and friends and taking care of their personal hygiene. This time gave troops the chance to decompress and not worry about their personal safety.

The Chapel at Cecil Commerce Center was originally dedicated in 1963 as part of NAS Cecil Field. The objective of the Cecil Field POW/MIA Memorial, Inc. non-profit is to honor former Prisoners of War (POWs) and those who remain Missing in Action (MIAs) from all branches of the military. The Chapel serves as a focal point in this effort, as we restore the current chapel building. While the chapel will serve as the centerpiece for honoring former POWs and past and present MIAs, this organizations will also be building a place of education, respite, and reflection on their sacrifices.

The Lioness Odyssey Program is a new mentorship initiative designed to connect female military veterans under the age of fifty (50), with a female military veteran mentor who is over the age of fifty (50). The female veteran community has often been labeled the silent portion of the veteran community and that silence has led to a lack of communication about services and programs. The launch of the Lioness Odyssey Program is our concerted effort to re-establish the lines of communication and encourage women to speak up about their experiences.
