The 2nd Annual Orange County Stand Down was held at the Army Reserve Center in Costa Mesa, CA on August 17-19, 2012.

Dozens of social services were on hand to assist the veterans and their families such as employment agencies, housing services, legal services, gov't benefits, medical and mental health providers.
