Thank You so Much Tyler for your Contribution to the Veterans in our community.
You are Awesome!!!

Good Day folks,
I'd like to introduce you to a wonderful young man, if you don't already know him.. Tyler Forgeron AKA "TYLER CAN". Tyler lost his job at the showcase cinema when the pandemic hit in March.. He has Autism and loves to count. Instead of turning the pandemic into a negative, he turned it into a positive.. He started collecting cans/bottles so he could donate all the proceeds to different organizations. To date he has raised over $5,300 and counting. He has given back to the community and beyond.. Below you see Tyler handing a Check over to the Walpole VSO, Jon Cogan. The Walpole Veterans Service Committee appreciates the donation from Tyler which will help support our Veterans in need.

If you have any cans or bottles to donate, Tyler would really appreciate them.. They can be dropped off at his home, 76 Coolidge Rd or at the Walpole Farmers Market, he has a table there on Saturdays. Feel free to follow and "Like" his page "Tyler Can". I'd also like to thank Tyler's Mom, Tracy Deroma, she has supported all of Tyler's efforts throughout the pandemic and has been a wonderful support for her son..
Keep this going by sharing to your Timeline... The more we spread the word, the more donations can be made..Thanks Again Tyler We appreciate YOU!!!👍👍

HALF STAFF NOTIFICATION:

Please be advised that in accordance with United States Public law 103-322, Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker has ordered that the United States of America flag and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts flag be lowered to half-staff at all state buildings from sunrise until sunset on Friday, May 15th, 2020 in honor of National Peace Officers Memorial Day.

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week. The Memorial Service began in 1982 as a gathering in Senate Park of approximately 120 survivors and supporters of law enforcement. Decades later, the event, more commonly known as National Police Week, has grown to a series of events which attracts thousands of survivors and law enforcement officers to our Nation's Capital each year.

Today, more than ever, we salute, honor, and remember those who have lost their lives in the line of duty. We shall never forget. 🇺🇸

1st Lt. Andrew J. Bacevich Jr. | Remembering an American Hero

Army 1st Lt. Andrew J. Bacevich Jr., 27, of Walpole, Mass.; was Killed In Action on this day in 2007 in Balad, Iraq, of wounds sustained when an improvised explosive device detonated near his unit during combat patrol operations in Salah Ad Din Province, Iraq. He assigned to the 3rd Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, Fort Hood, Texas.

Andrew graduated from Heights High School in Potomac, Maryland in 1998 and then Boston University in 2003 with a degree in communications. In high school he was unable to enroll in ROTC because of his asthma. When the military eased its restrictions, he went on to become an officer serving in the United States Army. Andrew was active, athletic, humorous and liked to be with friends and play soccer.

As an officer, 1LT Bacevich followed in his father's footsteps by joining the U.S. Army. He was an outstanding soldier who was brave, steadfast, and irrepressible.

His family and friends are in our thoughts always but especially today as they remember their loved one.

VA Boston Community Clinics Have Moved to Virtual Care
to Protect Veterans, Staff and the Community Against
COVID-19

BOSTON. – VA Boston Healthcare System, to protect Veterans, staff, and the community from the spread of COVID-19, is delivering most outpatient care via virtual technology, such as telehealth, secure messaging (MyHealtheVet), teleconferencing (Veteran Video Connect), electronic consults (eConsults), and phone consultation at all our community clinics in Framingham, Lowell, Quincy, Plymouth and Boston.

“The health and safety of our Veterans, staff and community is paramount,” said Vincent Ng, Director, VA Boston Healthcare System. “Like many community facilities, we are reserving face-to-face visits for urgent conditions and using advanced virtual care technologies to meet the needs of Veterans with less urgent conditions. VA has been a leader in the development of virtual care, and we are capitalizing on these advances to keep patients and staff safe. Veterans who receive care in all our facilities can continue to receive the full range of care, from phone consultation for minor concerns to state-of-the-art interventions for serious medical, surgical, and mental health conditions. We are also fully prepared to provide the full range of care for Veterans with COVID-19.” said Ng.

“We are already delivering most care virtually at our community clinics to allow for appropriate social distancing but are maintaining a small core of healthcare workers at each site,” said Ng, “We are urging Veterans to call before coming in so that we can assess their condition.”

Help us address urgent needs first by using one of our online tools for routine or non-urgent concerns. You can:

Use Secure Messaging. You can send a secure message to your provider about any health concern or question.

Download VA Video Connect. Your provider may ask you to consider telehealth for an upcoming appointment. By downloading and learning about the VA Video Connect app now, you can prepare yourself.

VA continues to encourage Veterans, staff and families to take everyday precautions to protect against respiratory illnesses caused by COVID-19, the flu and the common cold.

For more information, questions or concerns, contact the VA Boston Call Center available 24 hours a day, at 857-364-4418 The 24/7 Veterans Crisis Line is available for urgent issues at 1 (800) 273-8255, Press 1.

An outpatient Veteran tested positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19) on March 24, 2020, at the Bedford Veterans Affairs Medical Center. The risk of transmission to other patients and staff remains low, as facility was able to discharge the Veteran home based on clinical status with instructions for home isolation and self-care in accordance Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines. VA is screening Veterans and staff who present with symptoms of fever, cough and shortness of breath who meet the CDC criteria for evaluation of COVID-19 infection. Per CDC guidance and VA protocols, patients known to be at risk for a COVID-19 infection are immediately isolated to prevent potential spread to others. This is the first case of COVID-19 for Bedford VAMC.

Please understand that for the foreseeable future staff at our medical facilities have as their first priority the preparedness of that facility to meet the needs of veterans and their families. Our goal is to prevent COVID-19 infections from spreading within VA, while maintaining our usual high level of care for all Veterans. To do this, it is important for us all to work together to protect ourselves from infection, keep our facilities clean, follow CDC guidelines to evaluate and care for Veterans with potential exposure and symptoms of respiratory illness, and maintain our focus on doing our jobs to the best of our abilities. To ensure Members of Congress have the most accurate and up to date information, VA has established a website with general information on status of VA’s response to COVID-19 which can be found at this link: https://www.publichealth.va.gov/n-coronavirus/index.asp. This site also has a report tracking the number of Veteran patients by facility with either a CDC confirmed or a locally, presumptively confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis.

Bedford VAMC has also stood up an Incident Command team, reachable at [email protected] for questions, comments or suggestions. In addition, the Veterans Health Administration has asked that any Congressional inquiry related to COVID-19, i.e.: policy changes, treatment, procedural issues, be routed through the facility’s public affairs officer; my PAO is part of the Incident Command Team.

Apply for and manage the VA benefits and services you’ve earned as a Veteran, Servicemember, or family member—like health care, disability, education, and more.

I was one of these Marines waiting to board USS Durham on March 20th 1970. I believe we were the only American servicemen to return to America via a ship. I believe we were at sea for 21 days. The Marine living quarters below deck had bunks for a few hundred Marines. First day at sea and it was rough waters for Marines, and the living quarters filled up with vomit and a smell that lingered for the entire voyage. Most of us decided to sleep on the deck under the stars at night. Other than going to chow this is where I stayed for the next 21 days. I often think how we were allowed to decompress during that journey as compared to the guy who is in the jungle one day and 2 days later back in his hometown. An interesting footnote we experienced 2 April Fools Day 1970 as we crossed the international date line. We arrived off the coast of California and seemed to be in a holding pattern just waiting to dock at Long Beach. It eventually became clear we were holding to disembark in coordination with the evening news.
What a proud vet!
