American Legion, Department of Indiana Releases Statement Concerning Revelations of Illicit Drug Trafficking at Roudebush VA Medical Center
Date:12/4/2008

INDIANAPOLIS, Dec. 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Commander of The American Legion Department of Indiana has released the following statement concerning illegal drug trafficking at Indianapolis' Roudebush VA Medical Center:

"The men and women of The American Legion Department of Indiana, more than 120,000 war time veterans, are following the revelations concerning illegal drug trafficking at Indianapolis' Roudebush VA Medical Center with dismay and keen interest.

"Other than what has been released through the public media, we have no information on the situation, but we are confident that law enforcement and VA officials will find and deal with those responsible for and participating in this despicable activity.

"Even so, revelations of the involvement of low-level employees of the VA Medical Center are a cause of great concern to the Legion because of the potential risk to those who already have suffered much for our country.

"The American Legion has close ties to Roudebush. Many of our members volunteer their time there, we donate thousands of dollars worth of material and equipment annually, and our service officers work closely to assure proper care for veterans treated there. I am confident that no one even remotely associated with The American Legion Department of Indiana will be implicated in this scandal, but our constitution provides for swift and appropriate action should anyone so implicated be among our number.

"I want to assure our members and the public that we take the safety and well-being of hospitalized veterans very seriously, and we will monitor the VA's response closely to make sure that those who have endangered the health of patients there will be swiftly and appropriately dealt with."

Ralph Tolan, Commander
