Volunteers at Boise’s Stand Down load up Paul Gilbert with warm, clothing, socks, long johns and a duffel. The new coat? "Warmth," he says. "I need it." The Vietnam vet has been homeless, although he’s now at the Veteran’s Hospital. "It’s nice to know so many people care," he says.
The Stand Down is a place for homeless vets to get a hot meal, a change of clothes, a shower, haircut, medical exam, vision check and even a massage, all in one place. Nov. 10, 2012.
