Veterans Newsletter - May, 2022

Well it is spring time in Indiana. The Veterans are very active with us. We have had 64 phone calls into my Office while I had 8 visits into my office for April. We did take 4 veterans to the VA Hospitals for the month of April. Three people went to Roudebush Hospital in Indianapolis, and we took one person to Danville, Il Hospital.

I will be going to the American Legion Post 72 in Crawfordsville on the 5th of May from 1-4:00 PM and then I will go to the VFW Post 1431 in Crawfordsville on the 26th of May Thursday from 1-4:00 pm. Anyone may come and visit me at these two locations and you don’t need to be a member of either post.

Anyone needing a ride to any of the VA hospitals may phone me at 765-361-4133 and try to make it a week in advance.

The VA adds 9 Respirator Cancers to the list of conditions Related to Post -9/11 burn Pit exposure and they are: Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Larnex, Squamous of the Trachea, adenocarcinoma of the Trachea, Salivary gland-Type Teneas of Trachea, Large Cell Carcinoma of the Lung, Salivary gland-Type Tumor of Lung, Sarcoma-toid carcinoma of the lungs, Typical and atypical carcinoma of the lungs, adenocarcinoma of the Lungs. If you have any of these cancers please call me for an appointment.

Stay Safe,

Joe Ellis, VA Officer
