Find assistance as a vet, spouse, or dependent

One hundred and fifty years ago today, President Lincoln signed a law establishing the first federal veterans’ facility for disabled Civil War veterans. This facility gave root to the Department of Veterans Affairs’ assistance programs.

Today, the VA offers many benefits and services to eligible veterans and connects our military service men and women with resources across the country. Share this information with a veteran you know, or an organization that helps veterans.

He started historical explorations of burial grounds while attending Kean University in Union, New Jersey, taking pictures and recording grave stones, with a special eye towards Civil War veterans. He discovered the burial web site:’Find-a-Grave’ and reached out to the, and soon became an active contributor providing photos and biographies he had researched and uncovered.
