The Health of Veterans

February 19th, 2013

2-19-13Today’s shorter than usual ride took me to the Indian River County Health Administration offices for visits to a couple of departments to tell them of my ride. Great interest in the message of my ride was evident throughout the offices.
One of my other stops was to a Vero Beach Veterans group. The friendly group invited me in for refreshments and conversation. We talked of the challenge of returning back to society and settling into a life similar to what they had when they left. Many veterans are having a difficult time reconnecting with family, friends and community.
If you have a chance to make the life of a veteran easier, do so. Many need housing, jobs, a helping hand up…all of them could use another friend.
