Recently, the Melbourne campus participated in a Stand Down held in Titusville,. The Melbourne SVA organized 12 student volunteers, along with Kevin McGarry (SVA Faculty Advisor) and Michelle Lugo (Nursing Faculty) as escorts and/or manning different stations for Veterans-in-Need.  After a veteran signs in, they are assigned an escort who makes sure they get to the station providing whatever services they may need.

All-in-all there were 194 veterans from Brevard and surrounding counties, including Indian River, East Orange and South Volusia.
