Giving our veterans a hand up and not a hand out.
Operation Stand Down Midsouth Inc. (OSDM) inspired homeless and disabled veterans to become self- sufficient and economically viable members of their community since 2009. The organization started with three members :William Jones (Sargent First Class & U.S Army Retired), Joseph Tyler (United States Air Force Veteran), Tiffany L. Harris (United States Army Reserve Veteran), and Gloria Watkins. They sought to start a grassroots campaign to eliminate veteran homelessness in the Memphis area. In 2010, the organization hosted the first stand down event in the mid-south and helped 150 veterans. After seven years, their aspiration has turned a city wide movement into a Mid-South effort to aide their fellow comrades. OSDM have collaborated with veteran service organizations, Department of Veteran Affairs and community and faith- based organizations. In 2016, OSDM expanded their efforts to help veterans across the mid-south area which includes Memphis, Forrest City, AR and Holly Springs, MS.
