American Legion Post 515 prepares for busy November

Dr. Youngblood is a Primary Patient Care Analyst for the Veterans Administration (VA) in Washington, DC. He travels to all VA hospitals and trains medical personnel on procedures and laws. He serves on President Trump's committee to unify all veterans records to a central department. During his visit, he will discuss changes in laws and benefits available to veterans.

This event will be held November 19, 2019 at American Legion Post 515 in Douglas, located at 1510 McLean St., from 3:30 to 5:30 PM, starting with refreshments, brief opening ceremony and welcome by the Daughters of the American Revolution, comments from Dr. Youngblood, questions to Dr. Youngblood and American Legion program updates by members of American Legion Post 515. 

Dr.Youngblood desires to speak with as many veterans as possible, so come out, listen and ask questions that concerns you and many other veterans.  “I want to make this clear: Dr. Youngblood is not a local or state level VA representative, he is from the national level VA office in Washington, DC.,” stated Post 515's Service Officer, Jerome Loving.

Veterans of Douglas and Coffee County should take advantage of this opportunity.  Space is limited; therefore, potential attendees must RSVP Jerome Loving at 912-592-6413 by November 15, 2019,” stated Post 515's Commander, AlfaleneWalker. 

On November 17, Posts 18 and 515 will make their annual trip to the Dublin VA hospital.  They will take comfort items to veterans, provide entertainment, play BINGO and feed veterans a down home meal.  They will depart the Central Square parking lot around 10AM and should return around 5 PM.  The public is invited, but transportation is not provided.
