Hello, my name is Irvin “Scorpio” Lyons. After serving in the U.S. Army for 30+ years, spouse Gail and I, decided to plant our feet in Vine Grove, Kentucky. I spend most of my time participating in various functions supporting our veterans. I am a member of numerous organizations which gives back to communities across the nation.
Organizations such as: Kentucky Big Sister and Big Brother Advisory Board; North Hardin Lions Club; National Guard Challenge Academy (Mentoring young men & women; Heritage International Christian Church (Hospital Visitation Committee); Robley Rex Veteran Affairs Medical Center-Louisville, Kentucky (Visiting Veterans); Kentucky National Association for Black Veterans, Inc., and the list goes on.
One of my proudest moments was Founding and Spearheading the “Shining the Light on Military Women” program, and acquiring enough funds to clean and restore veteran headstones in surrounding cemeteries. I am a mentor at the Hardin County Veterans Treatment Court; A certified Veteran Service Officer, assisting Veterans and their families in submitting claims for compensation benefits. My most recent accomplishment was becoming a member of the Fort Knox Chapter of the Buffalo Soldiers Motorcycle Club. Representing the Legacy of the 9th and 10th Cavalry African American Soldiers by riding my steel horse and doing good in the community!
