Veterans to meet to discuss clinicSeptember 5, 2013
From local sources
Local veterans who are spearheading a push to open a veterans clinic in Dubois County will meet at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Jasper Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 673, 1907 Newton St.
The public is welcome to attend.
The proposal is in the beginning stages and must be approved by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
The proposed clinic would bring health care closer to thousands of ex-servicemen and ex-servicewomen scattered across southwestern Indiana.
The closest VA clinics are in Evansville and New Albany, more than an hour’s drive from Jasper. And the closest VA hospitals are in Louisville, an hour and a half away, and Marion, Ill., which is a three-hour drive.
According to figures compiled by the VA, Dubois County has more than 3,100 veterans eligible for VA care.
