Well here we go another month is in the books. Hope you have been enjoying fall.

Our volunteer drivers have escorted seven veterans to Roudebush Hospital in Indianapolis and three veterans to Danville, Illinois. I have taken several veterans myself to the hospitals as we are still short on volunteers. I had 75 phone calls and thirteen people came into my office this past month.

On Oct. 17 we will again offer the Veteran Expo from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the American Legion Post 72. We will provide flu shots. Bring your Medicare card and your VA card if you have one for your higher dosage flu shot. It will be a different expo with different vendors.

Please note, I will be at the American Legion Post from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Thursday for anyone who wants to come in to ask questions or to start a claim. You do not have to be a member of the American Legion to see me.

Please don’t forget to have your DD-214 recorded at the courthouse in the recorder’s office for your safety. This service is free.

If you are a veteran of the Blue Water Navy and you were 12 miles off of the coast of Vietnam please make an appointment to come into see me please.
