DURHAM, N.C. -

Veterans in need of assistance can get it Sept. 20 at the Bull City Stand Down.

The event will last from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. The activities will take place at the Durham County Memorial Stadium and National Guard Armory, located at 750 Stadium Drive.

Veterans can access help with:
