We are always looking to help our Active Military and Veterans anyway we can. If you have any ideas or thoughts about how we can better serve our Heroes, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- The Fallen Hoosier Heroes Memorial for Enduring Freedom - Go see this Memorial as it is still sitting at it's present location 401 N Union St in Westfield. They are patiently waiting on the City of Westfield and Hamilton County to let them know their plans, if any, for what they might have store for the location of the Fallen Heroes Memorial. It sits right in front of the old historic graveyard from back in the Underground Railroad days and it desperately needs some tender loving care as well. The Memorials board is hopeful the City and County will step up and let them know so they can start updating the Memorial as it too needs some repairs completed really soon. We want to help get the word out across the state that the Fallen Hoosier Heroes Memorial does exist and it would like our Gold Star Families, OEF/OIF Veterans and friends to join the board for their Memorial. It would be great to have them on our board!! So please let them all know we are here.
- August 2, 2014 is the 6th Annual Cpl Zachary Nordmeyer Memorial Ride starting at Post 500 right across the street from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. They raise funds in Zachary's name for the American Legion's Operation Comfort Warriors. They always put on quite an event after the ride as they auction of many awesome items.
- August 9, 2014 is the 1st Annual Signature Wound Ride benefiting the Rocky Mountain Hyperbaric Association. It starts at Indy West Harley in Plainfield and ends at the Fishers American Legion with a great ending for the day....
- September 27, 2014 is the 3rd Annual Veterans Remembrance Day at the Indiana War Memorial by the Speedway Young Marines. We would like everyone to bring their family, friends and whole neighborhood so we may pay our respects as we remember our Fallen Heroes. We will have speakers and one will be Senator Mike Delph, who has always been a great supporter of our Military and Veterans.
- October 4, 2014 Informative Discussion on PTSD/TBI recognition and treatment being put together by the Hamilton County Veterans. The focus is mainly for Hamilton County Veterans/Military and spouses to be present as we learn more about this disease and how we can better treat it. We will be at the Fishers American Legion Post 470 9091 126th St just west of Hwy 37 and across the street from the YMCA. It will be from 10am to 1pm and our speakers will be Dr Donna Lazarkz PhD, from the PTSD treatment unit at Richard Roudebush VA Hospital, and Sharon Clark from Riverview Hospital's Hyperbaric Chamber/Head Wound Department. We will also have Silouan Green from Ladder UPP on hand as our dream is to try and somehow link Ladder UPP, Riverview and the VA so we can better serve our Veterans/Military. We want to be able to reach out to as many Hamilton County Veterans/Military to enlighten them about PTSD/TBI and how to get proper treatment right here in Indy and Noblesville so our men and women do not have to be away from their families in Colorado. As we get closer to October if we have plenty of openings still available I will let you know so we can open it up to surrounding county Veterans as well. (The same holds true for the workshop Oct 11 below)
- October 11, 2014 at the Fishers American Legion - The Ladder UPP Workshop put on by founder Mr Silouan Green. This program will highlight the red flags of the disease and teach how to deal with them and how to get proper treatment. Ladder UPP comes at a cost of $500.00 up front for Mr Green to put it on and we need to pay $12 for each workbook. For this we will be speaking with each Veteran Service Organization in Hamilton County asking for a monetary donation to help sponsor this class. For 50 attendees we need to cover $1,100.00. You can read Mr Green's story here http://www.silouan.com/ and about Ladder UPP here http://theladderupp.com/

Hamilton County Businesses, residents & Veterans, we need your HELP
The Hamilton County Veterans, a non-profit 501C3 Organization, has been working with the Crownland Cemetery Board and we are ready to move forward with the request to clean up and make additions to the present War Memorial there. The War Memorial, dedicated in 1953, originally listed names of the Hamilton County Fallen Heroes from WWII. Since then additions were made to add the names of the Fallen from the Korean and Vietnam Wars. Well now it is time for us to stand up and add the names of our Fallen Heroes from WWI and from the Persian Gulf War… Since the last update the footings have deteriorated so much that we will need to remove all the stones and replace the footing again before the Memorial falls to the ground! This is why we need everyone’s help in making this a reality for Hamilton County.
