The Lynchburg Area Veterans Council was founded in December 2013. The Council provides services and resources for the City of Lynchburg, Amherst, Bedford, and Campbell counties. We are composed of: veteran organizations, veterans, private individuals, various nonprofit agencies, and businesses that support the needs of local area veterans. We have facilitated a centralized forum within our area to disseminate veteran information amongst veteran organizations, and support veteran activities for the common good and welfare of our local veterans. Our Council believes that every service member, veteran, and their family members should know and understand the benefits to which they are entitled.
