Denver Medical Center

The Denver Medical Center facility has gone completely smoke free. For those patients who need the nicotine, patches are available at the facility. About 23 percent of veterans coming to the Medical Center are smokers.

Foundation trips

The Greatest Generations Foundation is scheduling monthly trips to Washington, DC for World War II veterans. Each trip is planned for 25 to 30 veterans.

The trip begins from Denver on Saturday morning. Housing is in a five-star hotel. A visit to the WW II Memorial is the highlight of the trip. The return to Denver is Sunday afternoon.

All expenses are covered. Oh, if the vet wants to bring along some pocket change for snacks, souvenirs, or other such item, that's OK.

Medical personnel will be a part of each trip.

Contact the Foundation at www.TGGF.us for more information.

Transition Team

Governor Elect Ritter has appointed four veterans to one of his Transition Teams. They are Ralph Bozella (president of the Board of Veterans Affairs), Marvin Meyers, Bill Sinclair and George Thomas.

Veteran voices are being heard.
