VA Launches Website to Honor Deceased Veterans Online

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) National Cemetery Administration launched the first U.S. digital platform to contain memorial pages for the 3.7 million veterans interred in VA national cemeteries. The site, the Veterans Legacy Memorial, went live Aug. 14 and “creates a perpetual memorial extending beyond the physical border of the national cemetery,” VA said. The platform currently allows users to find where veterans are buried and details about their lives and service. VA hopes to later add features to allow families, survivors, and other veterans to add historic photos and share memories on deceased veterans’ memorial pages.
