Hamilton County Military Veteran Newsletter

Hamilton County Military, Veteran, Community Newsletter

This Newsletter is a new idea we are working on and it will take all our Hamilton County Veteran Service Organizations and Officers cooperation to pull this off. The Hamilton County Veterans Corp is working hard to communicate with all of our Hamilton County Veteran Service Organizations to be able to market their Posts to our whole community via all sorts of media outlets. We will hopefully be able to create a monthly or quarterly Newsletter which will contain important topics/activities from each Post so their Post members and their community members will know what events they might want to attend, or meal they would like to eat at their local Post.

  • What are the activities this week at my Post – there should be a monthly calendar for all to see
  • Who are my Officers and how do I reach them
  • Is there a direct line to my Service Officer if I need help
  • What is the Menu and the hours of food service
  • List the games being played, times and dates
  • What are the special interests in our community and are there any charities we are helping
  • A possible way to include a feedback page

The printed Newsletter here has QR codes for each Posts Facebook page so one just has to scan it with their cell phone and see their present activities, etc. The Cicero American Legion Facebook QR code only takes you to the Facebook login page for some reason?? Anyone know why?

Hamilton County Veteran Service Officers (CVSO’s) – the office is open for your calls, visits and filing your claims

With the help of our District VSO, Cambria Sparks, and our Assist Administrator Christina Ellis, Robin Wilson and Caroline Franz, our 2 CVSO’s, have been working long days to get the backlog taken care of and now they are ready to take all your calls and file your claims.

Hamilton County Veteran Service Organizations

I have only been able to list activities from FB pages and a calendar if they have one for events, projects and news from ea post. We should run a feature story on 1 post a month/quarter

Listed below are your Hamilton County American Legion and VFW Posts. Everyone of them needs your support to help them stay vibrant and alive to continue assisting and caring for our Military, Veterans, their families and our whole community! Each Post offers not only a Service Officer to assist our Veterans in filing claims or seeking financial help when needed, but they are always searching for ways to reach into their local communities to assist and donate their time and money to special groups, non-profits who also care for our neighbors. To continue doing all they do for their communities, they need your support by coming into their Posts and enjoying your time there with friends. They are your local family-oriented Bar & Grill with food, drinks, games and plenty of space to host your personal parties, or you may rent space for meetings or events to support local activities. They are open to the public and look forward to serving you.

As of January, 2024, the Posts that are completely SMOKE FREE are the Carmel American Legion, Carmel VFW and Noblesville VFW. The Fishers American Legion allows smoking in their enclosed bar area, the rest is non-smoking. The Noblesville American Legion allows smoking in the small game room building out front, the Post and meeting rooms are smoke free!! The Sheridan and Cicero American Legions still allow smoking in their Posts.

Hamilton County Stronger Veterans Stronger Communities Coalition On the Prevention of Suicide for Service Members, Veterans, their Families & Caregivers

The Coalition has been working with many different resources in Hamilton County for the past 2.5 years and are now teaming up with the IDVA to be the first county in Indiana to launch the Governor’s Challenge, a nationwide initiative for suicide prevention. The structure of The Governor’s Challenge helped us create our teams and projects to start implementing the Governor’s Challenge through grant dollars from the IDVA. We use the three Pillars of the challenge to guide our work – Identification, Connection, and Lethal Means and Safety – and we are currently putting together our Community Plan. We have been encouraged to think big with our ideas and include those organizations that currently serve veterans and bring in their ideas to reach into their local neighborhoods. We are also applying for a Planning Grant to create a 12 to 24 month Strategic Plan for Hamilton County. The Strategic Plan will include our Coalition working with many community partners to reach our Military and Veterans who are not connected, help them feel connected to their communities and further train everyone on lethal means & safety. More to come……


Fishers Armed Services Commission              

The drive for this commission is to make a more vibrant community where Military Service is Honored and recognized as a key component to our community’s future and wellbeing.

  • Meetings are the second Tuesday of the month, 4-530pm Pavilion Conference Room 10 Municipal Dr, Fishers, In 46038.

Website is – where you will find this info and links to make comments, suggestions and see the members of the commission.
