Hello Everyone,

It’s been a distressing couple of days for our mission at #StandingRock with the ACOE announcement we realize you all are looking for more information about what is going on and what happens next.

Veterans Stand has an advance team on the ground at the Standing Rock Reservation to meet with tribal and camp leadership to coordinate upcoming deployments, deliver supplies, and determine the areas of need in which we can be of greatest assistance.

It’s confusing time and morale here is low as people are worried about what comes next. Their biggest worry is that they have been forgotten, as we deliver supplies and gear to our brothers and sisters we have shared many tears and hugs of relief. It is important that we remain mindful of the fact that we are all here in spirit of peace and service, for an outcome that goes beyond the wishes and of any single person or organization.

We have been so grateful for your support which has helped us help so many others. This is a critical time for Standing Rock we have to ask for your help in continue spreading the news and this campaign with networks. Together we can stop this injustice, together we can make this Stand matter.

Thanks to your kind support we have hit a new high at just over $170K in just 10 days. We can’t thank you enough for your continued support!

Our advance team has made great progress in Standing Rock this week and look forward to sharing our plans with you all in the coming days. There is dire need in the camps in many areas we can address through this campaign but also hope, inspiration and a genuine tears of relief from the community of Water Protectors who have stood strong for these months in extreme conditions.

The #StoriesOfStandingRock are diverse and powerful. You’ll find people from all over the country with perspectives and motivations for taking their stand at #StandingRock as diverse as their background, political or religious beliefs. What drives them here is ultimately the need to protect our water, our land and our civil liberties.

What’s happening in Standing Rock is NOT happening to just the indigenous tribes of this area, it’s not just happening to people of this region who depend on this water supply, its NOT happening to some “hippies”, “libtards”, “protesters” or “domestic terrorists”. What’s happening at Standing Rock IS happening to ALL OF US, there is no them there is only we. What’s happening in North Dakota is happening all over the country; treaties are being disregarded; civil liberties are being assaulted; rights are being taken away and most importantly precedents are being set that can be used all over the country.

Many of you have been asking how you can support Standing Rock from home, look no further. Quick refresher on the $$ behind DAPL. https://www.democracynow.org/2016/9/6/whos_investing_in_the_dakota_access
