Blanchfield Army Hospital - BACH - Fort Campbell KYFort Campbell, KY – Fort Campbell’s Town Center Pharmacy has added an adult immunization service where TRICARE beneficiaries may receive vaccinations free, saving the government money officials announced April 9th, 2018.

“Previously the only option for beneficiaries not enrolled [with a primary care manager] at the hospital was to use off-post immunization services, like a retail pharmacy, so, we’re excited to make these vaccinations readily available on the installation for our adult beneficiaries seen off post and at BACH,” said Lt. Col. Ronald Foley, chief of pharmacy at Blanchfield Army Community Hospital.

Dodging the Roadkill: Expectations

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Let me first apologize for not posting any updates in the last week.  The flu bug/stomach bug has made the rounds through my household, so me and the “porcelain throne” have become “besties” this week.

One of the most common questions I get from the people I meet on this journey is, “do you stop and visit Harley dealerships when you travel?” 

Yes. 

I try to visit any and ALL dealerships when I’m on the road, especially Harley Davidson, because I collect Poker Chips.
