Attendees at a veterans stand down in Grand Rapids, Michigan, line up for free military surplus personal property items in August, 2022. Surplus items are so popular at the hundreds of stand down events held across the U.S. each year that event organizers often compel veterans to visit the information, reference and resource booths before visiting the surplus gear area. Hundreds of thousands of items are transferred to the Department of Veterans Affairs from DLA Disposition Services property disposal sites each year in support of homeless and at-risk veteran outreach.
