American Legion Post 12 announced on Wednesday that in cooperation with Madison County Judge-Executive Kent Clark and the Blue Grass Army Depot, that steps have been taken to build a new Veterans Center in Madison County.

The Center will be a permanent home for the Madison County Veterans organizations to allow better service for Veterans in the community.

The Center will be home to the following organizations:
  • American Legion Post 12
  • American Legion Riders
  • American Legion 40 & 8
  • American Legion Auxiliary
  • Sons of the American Legion
  • Disabled American Veterans
