Veterans gathered at the American Legion Post 8 today to celebrate Veteran’s Day in Lexington.

Our own Tom Kenny and Lexington Mayor Jim Gray honored military members right here in Lexington during the lunch.

Tom spoke about how having a father in the armed forces made him want to do more to help our active duty troops.

The Post’s Chaplain said helping veterans might be more simple than you think.

He says when he was serving as an 18-year-old, getting a box with just a book to read and paper and pen to write letters back home meant a lot.

Local displays to honor Vets were great for Veterans Day. I'm glad to see Lexington doing its part. At Pick Up Please, where I volunteer, we made a Veterans Day infographic in partnership with the Vietnam Veterans of America, to show stats about the struggles Vets face: I couldn't agree more--everyday is Veterans Day, especially since there are over 22 million Veterans living now. There are lots of ways to support Veterans; Pick Up Please, where I volunteer, offers a free donation pick up service for Vietnam Veterans, and we recently made an infograhphic for Veterans Day with facts about the struggles Vets face: http://www.pickupplease.org/facts-about-veterans-infographic
