This concept originated with Jay McChord, an entrepreneur and Council Member for the City of Lexington, KY. For the past twenty years, Jay has been using his artwork as a means to uniquely capture veteran’s stories and pictures. Recognizing the need for a journal-style book that would effectively record and organize a veteran’s experience A Veteran’s Legacy journal was born.
