Jill Millard Helps Coordinate Clothing For Homeless Veterans

{click on photo to visit the video} July 14, 2011 - Jill Millard looks at the mountain of clothes and wonders how it will ever get sorted in time.

Millard is the clothes coordinator for the annual Stand Down event in Balboa Park for homeless veterans. It's a task she took on three years ago -- a year after her youngest son, Gregory, was killed in Iraq.

"You know, you see all these guys and I still get emotional; I can see what Gregory might have gone through had he come home from combat," said Millard.

Before the three-day event is over, more than 900 veterans will come through the clothing tent and come away with a set of clothes and jackets and shoes.

"We have courts that run here, so they will be able to come in and pick out a suit or clean shirt and slacks so they can appear before the judge," she said.

"I love working with veterans, and I guess I'm selfish because this is partly for me because it does make me feel good," said Millard. read more>>>

Video Link: Stand Down To Provide Help For Homeless Veterans

 

Thousands of volunteers will provide medical care, counseling, food, clothing and other help to San Diego's homeless veterans during the annual Stand Down.

That one took the cake! Her son was killed in Iraq and her solution to "help" the veterans who come home and are "homeless" (like her son could have been). Wow!  Is this lady braindead?
