"Grill Sergeant" Staff Sgt. Bruce Clemens, a supply sergeant for the 1011th Quartermaster Company from Independence, Mo., draws on experience as an Army cook to grill pork chops over a smoky fire using apples for flavor at the Heart of America Stand Down for veterans held June 4-5 on the grounds of the Manual Career & Technical Center in Kansas City, Mo. The Heart of America Stand Down is a program designed to help homeless veterans in the Kansas City area. The program brings veterans to the event to give them a chance to access needed services in an environment where they are treated with dignity. The veterans are given medical and vision care, three meals a day, a safe place to sleep and other services and counseling they may require.
