Looking for Fluvanna veterans who served our country with honor and pride

Paid submission

We come to you with great concern that our Fluvanna County American Legion Post 2003 is fighting to meet its commitments. This is primarily due to an inadequate number of veterans active in our post – a very disturbing trend when Fluvanna County has over 2,000 recorded veterans. The post has provided support to veterans and the community for 16 years with the services of a few loyal and dedicated men and women.

The Military Honors Detail struggles to have adequate numbers to support veterans and their families at memorial services. That service is often unnoticed except for family and friends of the deceased veteran. It is our desire to stand ready for the phone call that states, “We have a funeral.” Those four words will set into motion the Honors Detail to render honors of yet another Fluvanna veteran who stepped up to serve his or her country. A recent funeral service was very moving for the Honors Detail. A small boy with his mother approached the detail afterwards and said, “Thank you for honoring my Poppy and for your service.”

The American Legion provides support to veterans and the community in the following manner.


  • Supplying personnel items to veterans at McGuire VA Hospital;
  • Supporting transportation needs for veterans to McGuire;
  • Supporting veterans and their families in time of need; and
  • Conducting military honors at veterans’ funeral services.


  • Supporting the American Legion baseball team for youth;
  • Sponsoring high school students to attend Boys State and Girls State; and
  • Conducting an oratorical competition for high school students.

If you have an interest in contributing to one or more of these objectives, please contact any of the following for more information:

  • Commander: Jack Durning 434-286-2045;
  • Adjutant: Gary Kuhns 434-589-5096;
