U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs offers a new way for the public to pay tributes to veterans at the Veterans Legacy Memorial (VLM). The site, originally launched in 2019, contains a memorial page for each veteran and service member interred in a VA national cemetery.
At the National Cemetery Administration, they believe that #NoVeteranEverDies and there are #MillionsofVeteransMillionsofStories. When you remember a veteran their legacy continues forever and ever.
In November 2020 they present the Find a Veteran, Post a Tribute campaign. Every day on the NCA Facebook and Twitter platforms they will feature one veteran with a tribute.
Visitors can post a Tribute (a text comment) on a page as a guest user or by logging in as a registered VLM user using an ID.me account. Visitors can also share their Veteran’s VLM page including Tributes to email and social media sites Facebook or Twitter by clicking one of the share buttons in the upper right of the Veteran’s tribute page.
Once a Tribute is reviewed by VLM moderators to determine if it complies with the VLM user policy, it will be posted to the veteran’s page – typically within two business days.
This Veterans Month, fill social media with tributes and stories about our great nation's veterans!
VLM is an online memorial space managed by the National Cemetery Administration (NCA). NCA manages more than 140 national cemeteries as shrine spaces to honor our nation's veterans, and extends memorialization of the 3.7 million Veterans interred in those cemeteries to this digital memorial space by providing a VLM profile page for each Veteran.
