MOAA Briefed on Radcliff Veterans Center

-A A +A

The Fort Knox Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America held its monthly meeting Dec. 18 at the MOAA Clubhouse on Fort Knox.


The guest speaker was Gilda Hill, executive director of the Office of Kentucky Veterans Centers as part of the Kentucky Department of Veterans Affairs in Frankfort. She is responsible for the veteran’s cemeteries and the veteran’s centers or nursing homes.

The Radcliff Center is the fourth one in the state and is the most modern. The center is designed to house 120 residents with private rooms and easily can be expanded. The facility has a main building for administration, physical therapy, chapel and conference rooms. Four buildings, called neighborhoods and holding 30 residents each, are positioned in all four directions around the main building. They each have their own kitchen and staff and all are connected with heated and cooled hallways. It is expected that, with the number of veterans in the surrounding area, the facility should maintain a full status. The Center is located on Veterans Highway north of Radcliff and adjacent to the Kentucky Veterans Cemetery-Central.

The chapter holds its meetings the third Wednesday of the month at its clubhouse in building 2377 on Fort Knox.
