Hamilton County Military Veteran Newsletter & Flyer

Hamilton County Military, Veteran Newsletter & Flyer

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 create this Newsletter and keep it going. The goal is to market their Posts to our whole community so everyone knows they exist, where they are, what hours they are open (to members and to the public), what goes on inside and the great things they do for their communities. We are reaching out to all media outlets to get this published and we are happy to say that the Hamilton County Reporter will be starting a monthly Hamilton County Veteran Community page! The Reporter link to their Paper online is and in this edition we are on page 4. They will be running the Hamilton County Veteran Community page every Saturday. We are also working with the Current in all Hamilton County cities to create a column for our Military Veteran community as well! These monthly Newsletters/columns will branch out to cover each Posts Auxiliary, Sons and ALR units activities and events taking place in their communities. We will also start including the activities of all Hamilton County Military, Veteran organizations including the IDVA, our Stronger Veterans Stronger Communities Coalition and the Governor’s Challenge for preventing suicides.

Here are some of the items we have asked our Hamilton County VFW’s and American Legions to put on their Facebook pages to help market their Posts to their neighbors. So please do check their Facebook pages out for more up to date information.

  • What are the activities this week at my Post – there should be a monthly calendar for all to see
  • Is the Public welcome to come into the Post and if so, what days and times
  • 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 and is the public welcome
  • List the games being played, times and dates and is the public welcome
  • 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 Hamilton County Military Veteran Newsletter for Q 1 2024 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 QR code takes you to their website & calendar – they also have a Facebook page but a QR code for it will not work correctly.

Here is the Hamilton County Veteran Service Organization Flyer that we will be getting printed to place in all Hamilton County businesses for all our residents to see and to have. The more we all know about the resources available here locally to address the concerns, issues we and our neighbors have, the stronger and more connected our community will be!!



Welcome to the Hamilton County Veterans Corporation May 2024 Newsletter covering Military, Veteran Community (MVC) activities here in Hamilton County.

Listed below are the Hamilton County American Legion and VFW Posts located in our neighborhoods. Please stop in and see what they are doing not only for our MVC but for your neighborhoods. If you are in the Military, a Veteran or just want to help, come in and let’s talk about joining our community so we may 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 events, special groups, non-profits who also care for our neighbors. To continue doing all they do for our communities, they need our continued support by coming into their Posts and enjoying time there with friends and family. They are our local family-oriented Bar & Grill with food, drinks, games and plenty of space to host personal parties, or you may rent space for meetings or events to support local activities. Some Posts are open to the public every day while others are open on specific days for food, games, fun and they all look forward to serving you.

We Are Working to Eliminate Veteran Suicide Here In Hamilton County And You Can Help

The ‘Stronger Veterans, Stronger Communities’ Coalition on the Prevention of Suicide in Service Members, Veterans, and their Families and Caregivers has been a collaborative effort since late 2021 to reduce the number of veteran suicides in Hamilton County.  Under the umbrella and leadership of A Healthier Hamilton County: Systems of Care, anyone is welcome to join the Coalition who is interested in preventing suicide. Members include veteran-serving organizations, non-profits, local government, and other entities throughout the county including volunteers and veterans and service members themselves.

The coalition has teamed up with the Indiana Department of Veterans Affairs (IDVA) and will be launching the Governor’s Challenge to fight suicide in Veterans here in Hamilton County. We are working collaboratively to leverage all resources for our service members, veterans, and their families to bring meaning and value to their lives.  We plan to do this through three the Pillars of the Governor’s Challenge – 1. Identifying the service members, veterans, and their families and caregivers, 2. connecting them to resources no matter the level of need, and 3. promoting safety for those in a suicidal crisis.

As we reach out in our neighborhoods to find or identify our Military Veteran community (MVC) that is not connected, we will have a QR code to Ask the Question, ‘Have you or a family member served in the Military/National Guard? If the person scans this QR code with their cell phone it will take them to a website where questions based on their Yes/No answer will direct them to the resources they need…… leading us into Pillars 2 and 3 of connecting and promoting lethal means safety to save lives.

We have built a team and grown alongside the Governor’s Challenge with the IDVA, who we recently requested funding to further our projects in here Hamilton County. We were encouraged to think BIG with our ideas and include those organizations that currently serve our Military Veteran community to incorporate their ideas in our 12–24-month strategic plan. This plan will include our Coalition working hand in hand with many community partners to reach our Military and Veterans who are not connected. We will introduce them to those who will get them their benefits and resources they have earned, helping them be more connected thus building stronger Veterans through stronger communities. The more we all know about where to get the benefits and resources we need to address our issues/needs the stronger more connected we all will be!!

Speaking of resources, our partner, the Hamilton County Veterans Corp (HCVC) is hosting a Hamilton County Community Resource Fair July 20, 2024, from 11am to 3pm at the Noblesville Schools Community Center 1775 Field Drive at the north end of the stadium at Noblesville High School. This resource fair is not just for our Military Veteran Community (MVC), it’s for all our Hamilton County neighbors! Sure, maybe 30 resources are specific for our MVC but there will be over 85 resources setup inside and outside the community center to help us all live a more fulfilled life right here in Hamilton County. Bring a Veteran, bring a neighbor!

If you are interested in learning more about how you can work with the ‘Stronger Veterans, Stronger Communities’ Coalition to prevent suicide in Hamilton County’s service members and veterans, email [email protected]

If you are a Veteran or Active Military and wish to become a member of the Hamilton County Veterans Corp, please send an email to [email protected] so you too may help us help our MVC. Our dues is only $25/mo and we meet the first Monday of the month at 7pm at the Fishers American Legion 9091 E 126th St in their big American Room. See you there!
