I am of the humble opinion that Gibson County veterans should consider themselves very fortunate to live where we do.

In addition to fabulous healthcare facilities in Evansville and Vincennes, local veterans have the complete support of county government in every conceivable way. Indisputable evidence of this rests in the presence of our county van used exclusively for transport of disabled veterans to their VA medical appointments.

This indispensable service is in large part funded by the commissioners/council and without it, many of our nations’ heroes would struggle to get the medical care that they need and deserve, for lack of transportation.

It must be noted that many Indiana counties do not share our good fortune.

This vehicle is operated by a small platoon of incredibly dedicated volunteers who have made it their purpose to ensure that these vets get where they need to be. Without these selfless folks, who seek no recognition or fanfare, this entire effort would fail.

I salute them and encourage you to do the same as you have opportunity. For anyone who would have the time and desire to serve others, call me and let’s talk how you can help support the effort. If you would be inclined to financially support the effort, call me (812-385-4522) as well. I would love to tell you how you can do that.

If you are in need of this service, I should be your first call. We are here to serve you.
