OSDRI staff is standing by and ready to serve!

OSDRI would like to thank our good friends at McBride's Pub in Providence. The Russell family and their staff do so much for OSDRI. Due to the Governor's order they will have to shut down. They thought of our veterans to donate food. Please support them when they open back up!

In a century of American wars, no other has been rendered quite so invisible to the public. Americans don’t want to fight in Afghanistan, they don’t want to die in Afghanistan and they don’t really want to hear about Afghanistan.

Supporter Spotlight

Operation Stand Down Rhode Island wishes to recognize AMGEN for its partnership in serving and honoring our local veterans.  For over four years, AMGEN has provided financial support helping our employment and training program succeed in returning veterans to the workplace and self-sufficiency.  The dedicated employees of AMGEN have also donated countless volunteer hours to the Boots on the Ground for Heroes Memorial, Stand Down Weekend, and improvement projects at our veteran housing facilities.  Thank you!
