The Lawrenceburg Fairgrounds, owned and operated by American Legion Post 34, is known for being the permanent location of the “Healing Field,” founded by the Ladies Auxiliary of the American Legion Department of Kentucky. Each flag at the field honors a service man from Kentucky or stationed at bases in Kentucky killed in Iraq or Afghanistan.
The Healing Field at Lawrenceburg is the only one in Kentucky, and among the few such memorials throughout the nation.

Official opening ceremonies for the reunion will be at noon on Saturday, May 19. There will be live entertainment both Friday and Saturday, a number of vendors offering caps, patches and military memorabilia will also be on hand, as will several non-profit organizations.
The motorcycle show will be Saturday afternoon.
The motorcycle run, while being staged as part of the All Veterans Reunion program, will be held Saturday, May 12. Entry fee for the run, which will begin and end at the Healing Field is $10 per bike.
The motorcycle show will be held on Saturday, May 19.
