July 16, 2013 Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano, in coordination with the United Veterans Organization (UVO), hosted the summer Vets "Stand Down" at the American Legion, 160 Marvin Avenue in Hempstead. The Stand Down was co-hosted by the Nassau County Veterans Service Agency with assistance from volunteers representing all service organizations.
Veterans received assistance with securing entitled benefits, job counseling and legal advice. Clothes and food donated from the community were made available to the veterans, as well as haircuts, medical screening and enrollment in the VA health care system. Representatives from Nassau County government agencies participated, including the Departments of Social Services, Health, and Human Services.
