INDIANAPOLIS – To commemorate Veterans Day and honor those who have served our country, Colts players and Blue made a visit to the Richard A. Roudebush VA Medical Center in Indianapolis, Ind., on Tuesday November 11. Since 1932, the VA Medical Center has been serving veterans by providing acute inpatient and outpatient services in a variety of areas. Each year, the Center cares for more than 47,000 patients.
Colts TE's Tom Santi and Jacob Tamme took time out of their day off to accompany Blue on visits to many patients' rooms throughout the hospital. They provided some extra cheer to the veterans' day by signing autographs, handing out posters, and thanking them for serving our country.
The visit was made possible in part through the Celebrity Entertainment Program of the Disabled American Veterans (DAV), a non-profit organization that works to build better lives for our nation's disabled veterans and their families. Through their Celebrity Entertainment Program, athletes and other celebrities donate their time to visit the men and women who sacrificed greatly in defense of our country.

Colts Community Tuesdays, sponsored by WISH TV, is a season-long outreach program in which players participate in various charitable activities every Tuesday of the season.
