The Hamilton County Veterans, a 501c not-for-profit organization, would like to thank all in the county that helped promote our programs during 2012 in support of all veterans and those on active duty. We were able to once again send care packages overseas and to deliver items needed by our brothers and sisters now in the VA Hospital. Our goal for 2013 is to raise enough money, before Memorial Day, to add two new memorial stones to the Hamilton County Veteran Memorial located in Noblesville’s Crown Land Cemetery. The stones will have the names of our heroes from Hamilton County that were killed in action during the current Persian Gulf War and those killed in World War I. Any service club, veteran organization or business, individual or family wishing to make a donation should send their donation to HCV – Post office Box 503, Noblesville, IN 46061.
All World War II veterans are urged to contact Wayne Long, Hamilton County Veteran Service Office and HCV treasurer, to get on our list for the upcoming honor flight to Washington, D.C. this April. This is a free, one-day excursion to Washington to see their War Memorial, Arlington Cemetery and many other sites. Those interested should call 776-9610 to receive an application.
All honorably discharged veterans are welcome to join the HCV. Annual dues are $15 and we meet at 7 p.m. the forth Monday at the Noblesville East Public Library.
