Memorializing Even More Veterans

Veterans Legacy Memorial (VLM) now honors nearly 10 million Veterans and service members on the nation’s first digital platform dedicated to their memory. This year, nearly 5 million new Veterans and service members were added to VLM, many interred in private and other non-VA cemeteries who had received a National Cemetery Administration (NCA)-provided headstone, marker or medallion since 1996.

Digital Tributes

Family and friends have uploaded and shared tributes, photos, documents and more to Veterans’ memorial pages.

Write A Tribute

“This particular effort of adding nearly 5 million additional pages was fairly complicated. We were tapping into a database that was new for us. Within that database, there were all kinds of variations of locations and addresses and cemetery names. Medallions were a different type of record than the headstone records or the marker records. The team did a lot of development work to accommodate all those kinds of variations of data.”
