Williston Basin Stand Down


The Williston Basin Stand Down will be held May 1st, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Williston New Armory, located at 10 Main Street, Williston.

The purpose of the stand down is to provide a one-stop shop for services for veterans that are at risk or are currently homeless. The original stand down for veterans was modeled after the stand down concept used during the Vietnam War to provide a safe retreat for units returning from combat operations. At secure base camp areas, troops were able to take care of personal hygiene, get clean uniforms, enjoy warm meals, receive medical treatment, send and receive mail and enjoy the camaraderie of friends in a safe environment.

If you have questions please call Grant Carns, Williams County Veterans Service Officer at 701 577 4550.
