The recent report made by Boyle Post 46 in Danville, Ky., about its observance of its own – and The American Legion’s – 100th anniversaries included an overview of how the Wilderness Road Amateur Radio Club (WRARC) contributed to the activities.

Wilderness Road is a post-sponsored organization, rather than a post-owned club, and the story of how the two joined forces was featured in the October 2019 issue of CQ, the world's leading independent magazine devoted to amateur radio, published for more than 70 years.

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.
