E-mail Print PDF

The American Legion invites all Lexington, Ky., area veterans and their family members to a town hall meeting to discuss their VA care.

The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 21, at American Legion Lexington Man O War Post 8, 1230 Man O War Place, Lexington, KY 40504.

The town hall is one of many such events that The American Legion will conduct around the United States this year. The American Legion hosts these events to hear feedback from veterans about the quality of health care they receive at their local VA facilities.

Staff from The American Legion National Headquarters office in Washington, D.C., and American Legion Department of Kentucky, as well as representatives from VA and members of the Kentucky congressional delegation, will be in attendance.

Veterans who may not be able to attend the American Legion town hall meeting may leave their comments about the VA Health Care System by submitting an email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

The mailbox is not staffed, and you will not receive a response. Your comments will be compiled to evaluate veterans’ perceptions of the health care and services provided by the VA Health Care System.

The American Legion is scheduled to hold these remaining System Worth Saving site visits in 2019:

Nov 4 - 6: Salisbury VA Medical Center, Salisbury, NC

Dec 2 - 4: Central Alabama VAHCS, Montgomery, AL

A veteran’s family must request a United States flag.

A flag is provided at no cost to drape the casket or accompany the urn of a deceased veteran. Generally, the flag is given to the next of kin. Only one flag may be provided per veteran. Upon the request of the family, an “Application for United States Flag for Burial Purposes” (VA Form 21-2008) must be submitted along with a copy of the veteran’s discharge papers. Flags may be obtained from VA regional offices and most U.S. Post Offices.
