   The Grand Island American Legion Post #1346 and Grand Island Chapter #168, Disabled American Veterans, joined in a project to help our fellow Veterans. A request was made by Ms. Donna Trala of the Hematology/Oncology Ward at Buffalo VAMC (Veterans Hospital), Buffalo, NY for water bottles for the Veteran patients. The Grand Island American Legion and the DAV provided funds to purchase the bottles. These spill proof bottles are given to the patients to keep them from dehydration. The program is working very well and the patients make good use of these water bottles. The Legion and the DAV are actively supporting the patients at the VAMC with various needs that they otherwise would not have. Voluntary Services Director Mark Francis has a wish list of items that could make the patients' stay at the Hospital a bit more comfortable. As always volunteers are needed for various chores and especially drivers for the DAV Transportation Network. Anyone can volunteer. You do not have to be a Veteran . Call Mark at 716-862-8667 . Your help will make a difference .IF YOU LOVE YOUR FREEDOM, THANK A VET. Remember Our Fallen Heroes on Memorial Day !!!!
