Compatriots Visit Western Kentucky Veteran’s Center

Compatriots from the Col. Stephen Trigg Chapter visited the Joseph “Eddie” Ballard Western Kentucky Veteran’s Center in Hanson, Kentucky.  The visit was the culmination of an ongoing project to provide electric razors for the residents.

Since so many of the long-term residents are on anticoagulant therapy for various heart-related illnesses, regular razors are much too dangerous for their everyday use.  A simple nick while shaving can quickly turn into a major bleeding episode.  Electric razors provide a safe and efficient solution for these high-risk patients.  These compatriots delivered eight high-quality rotary razors to the staff Social Worker to distribute as she has need.  They also delivered several music CD’s from the 1950’s, 60’s, and 70’s for the music library.  The group took time to visit with a few patients, including one who was a life-long resident of Trigg County.
