There's a new effort underway, to help soldiers returning from the front lines.
Leaders in Kentucky have pledged to help troops and their families find much needed resources as they return to civilian life.
Current and former armed services members were on hand in Lexington, Saturday as community leaders came together and pledged their support to troops returning home from deployment.
Lexington council member, Linda Gorton, spearheaded the formation of the Bluegrass Armed Forces Community Covenant.
Representatives from 17 counties signed the covenant promising to help troops returning home find important resources in their communities.
The covenant will be officially celebrated during half time at the Kentucky-Tennessee game, Saturday night.
