Who We Are


Operation Stand Down Midsouth Inc. (OSDM) is a 501c(3) non-profit organization that is located in Memphis, TN. O.S.D.M was founded in 2009 by William Jones, who is a decorated Desert Storm Veteran and a retired non-commissioned Officer, Joseph Tyler (Air Force Veteran), Tiffany Harris ( United States Army Reserve Veteran), and Gloria Watkins.  Together, they started a grassroots campaign to decrease the veteran homelessness population  in the Memphis area. In 2010, the organization hosted the first "stand down" event in the Midsouth and helped 150 veterans.
