"The Hendricks County Veterans Transportation Network (VTN) managed and operated by American Legion Post 331 needs your assistance.  Our 2012 Ford Escape with its excess mileage is being recalled by the VA.  Therefore, we are partnering with the Department of Indiana Disabled American Veterans (DAV) and their Columbia Trust to purchase a 2017 Ford Flex that can comfortably carry seven veterans.  Our VTN, in existence since 2012, with its seven (7) volunteer drivers, has logged over 100,000 miles, consumed nearly 6,000 volunteer hours, and transported 3,228 veterans to and from Roudebush VAMC in Indianapolis, IN.  Our share of the cost, with the DAV is $15,000.00 and must be paid to the DAV on or before November 1, 2016.  Our 2017 Ford Flex will then be ordered in early 2017 and will arrive at American Legion Post 331 approximately June 1, 2017.  By cost sharing with the DAV, the Indiana Department of Labor takes care of insuring the vehicle and the VA takes care of the vehicle's title, license plates, maintenance, gasoline and VAMC parking.  Our Hendricks County Veterans need your assistance to keep our VTN active well into the future.  Please let us know of organizations who would enjoy supporting our veterans by sending their contact information to information@brownsburgpost331.org.  Please also consider assisting individually by sending in your donation payable to American Legion Post 331 and marked for VTN.  Your donation is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law as American Legion Post 331 is a 501c(19) organization.  We thank you for any support you can give us as we embark on this important fundraising effort to keep our Hendricks County Veterans Transportation Network alive and transporting.  Our address is American Legion Post 331, 636 East Main Street, Brownsburg, IN 46112-1423.  Signed - Richard D. Holmes, Commander."
