Lexington Connection

As part of the American Legion family, I am a member of Post 291 here in Lexington. My most sacred responsibility is to look out for each member in my post and fellow veterans. As a way to reach out to those who may need just a wellness check or help with a problem, the National Executive Committee passed Resolution 18 during Spring Meetings in May 2019. The resolution calls for “Buddy Checks” to be conducted Legion-wide on the weeks of the American Legion’s birthday, March 15, and Veterans Day.

However, American Legion members are encouraged to perform this vital function (Buddy Checks) whenever it makes the most sense in our communities. With the unfortunate containments that we are experiencing because of the coronavirus, I do Buddy Checks on everyone I call or meet. We are all in this boat together.
