Welcome, November.  

Cooler Weather, holidays and a lot of events at the post, this month.  

Just a reminder of some of the events taking place.

November 8th, Veterans Parade.  We still need participants. 

Meet at the Post at 8 AM.  We'll decorate the float and leave and return to the Post.

November 11th, Veterans Day ceremony at Dreggors Park at 10 AM and food after the ceremony at the Post.

November 27th, Thanksgiving Day Dinner at the Post.  
We need donations of turkeys and kitchen help.  
Please try to attend this meal so we can all celebrate and give thanks together.

As always, I want to thank all the Vets, Son's of Vets and the Ladies Auxiliary. 

All of us working as a team make these events possible.

I have left this important VA Patient Information up  for those of you who use the VA benefits. 

Important Phone Numbers For Daytona Beach VA Patients

If you seek emergent care (life or limb) at a local ER then you will need to call 321-397-6501 and let them know about the visit and why you went in order for them to consider paying for the visit.  You must call them within 48 hours of your visit or inpatient admission.

If you need to communicate with your doctor, change an appointment, request a renewal of a medication then call TELECARE  @ 1-800-645-6895 where you can speak with a nurse or pharmacy technician 24 hours a day 7 days a week.   These nurses and pharmacy technicians communicate directly with your doctor.  You will have much more success getting through on this number versus calling your team  directly.  

Pharmacy Refills:  1-877-646-4550  You must have your active prescription number available -- it is located on your medication bottle.

Use MyHealthEVet (https://www.myhealth.va.gov/index.html) to reorder your medications on-line.  It is much easier and less frustrating.  You can also send your provider secure messages through this site.
