Ventura, Calif., Friday, July 28, 2006 - Bearing the heat and years of hard living, homeless veterans wait in line for free medical attention from Dr. Charles Marshall, left, of the Veterans of Greater Los Angeles Health Center, during the 14th annual Ventura County Stand Down - a grass-roots intervention program that helps homeless veterans. The three-day event provides food, clothing, lodging, entertainment, and medical and mental services to homeless vets. Marshall added, "It gives these men a chance at medical care that they wouldn't otherwise have or even be able to afford.".
