Veteran volunteers prepare for support missions and mobilization to Standing Rock

"In the past two weeks the turmoil and uncertainty at Standing Rock has increased significantly. We have continued to stay in contact with indigenous and camp leadership and have identified several areas where the Veterans Stand network can continue to serve the needs of the camp and local community." said Veterans

And they have published a press release for medias and people. Read it below:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - FRIDAY, 01/27/17 media@veterans-stand.org

LOS ANGELES, CA : In response to recent aggressions and the passing of legislation which clears the way for the completion of the Dakota Access Pipeline, Veterans Stand is announcing that we will continue operations in support of the people of Standing Rock, the Water Protectors who have held the front lines, and the sustainability of our precious environment.

In the past two weeks the turmoil and uncertainty at Standing Rock has increased significantly. As we continue to monitor and stay in contact with the indigenous and camp leadership we see several areas where Veterans Stand and our network can continue to serve the local community.


In the spirit of service, and in the name of a free and evolutionary sustainable America, Veterans Stand is committed to ensuring that no human or civil rights violations go unchecked, that the voices of the people are truly heard, and that we leave behind a stable and unpolluted environment for future generations.

Respectfully, Veterans Stand Team

About Veterans Stand: Our mission is to unite citizens and all members of humanity through our shared military service; and to fulfill our promise to defend America from enemies, foreign and domestic, by combating the oppression of our fellow human beings and working to create a better future through continued sacrifice and service.

    So grateful for this service that they and the other protectors are doing for the people and the earth. I have tears of gratitude and will be sending what aid I can.

  2. I support the Standing Rock cause. I believe that this is one of the most important cause of all. And also believe that the Water protectors have been since last april a model for a lot of us in peacefully protecting the water of the Missouri river. Greatful for those great people.

    Thank goodness you are able to return -- what a difference you all made the first time -- there is always something very special about a veteran -- maybe it's the "can do" attitude, or your skillsets, but whatever it is, there's nothing like a veteran who steps in when the going get'tough

    Names of Tribal Vets in image: Harvey Moses Jr. (red baseball cap), Larry Allen (tan baseball cap), and Joaquin Marchand (red beret). All are enrolled members of the Colville Confederated Tribes (WA state) and Army combat veterans from Vietnam to Iraq/Afghanistan. Our people will always fight for this land, and support our brothers and sisters who protect the land and our resources. Prayers for all Water Protectors!

    Prayers & Blessings from a fellow Vet! May our Mighty Creator watch over each and every one of you - standing for & with The People & resources for all of us & future generations!

  23. When are you headed there? I am also a vet and plan to go to give medical support this weekend.

    I am not in a position to be with you there. But would like to support and work for divestiture in all banks supporting DAPL. If the banks realized the impact of a ban on all banks supporting DAPL, perhaps they would back down on this destructive,unjust destruction of this earth and the people that depend on the water. I applaud the veterans and all efforts to stop this injust cruelty to our earth.
