Lynchburg Area Veterans Council
Lynchburg is a historic city filled with deep military pride.
Today, that commitment to our community veterans is stronger than ever. On every for the last 15 years our local community gathers at Monument Terrace to remember and honor our veteran’s past and present. We have stayed true to the principles of our forefathers and have continued the tradition of remembrance and pride. It is this principle on which the Lynchburg Area Veterans Council is founded. We are a group of volunteers (civilian and veteran) that have gathered together to recognize the veteran’s sacrifice and to help meet their needs. From homelessness to home repair we at the LAVC are there for them, to give them a hand up and not a hand out. As a premier MyVA support organization, we have assembled a network of Community and Veteran organizations that work together in fellowship to strengthen our community ties. Join us to make a difference. Join us in the Lynchburg pride of many generations. Join the work of the Lynchburg Area Veterans Council.
