Volunteers say more South Georgia veterans need their free transportation service to the Albany V.A. clinic and the Dublin medical center.

 Al Krause and his wife Annie have been driving the Disabled American Veterans Transportation Network vans for almost 8 years. They have each driven over 10-thousand miles, transporting disabled veterans for medical care at the Albany V.A. clinic and the Dublin Hospital.

The Krauses want to make sure all veterans in South Georgia know their transportation service is available. Al Krause said "They can't drive, some are disabled. So this is a great service for them. We enjoy doing it. Veterans, we were all in the military together, helping each other, and now it's still time to help each other."

There are currently two vans transporting veterans in South Georgia, but a third will go into service later this year. If you are a veteran who needs transportation to the V.A. Clinic, call the clinic, and they will set up an appointment.
