About the Veterans Legacy Memorial (VLM)

The Veterans Legacy Memorial (VLM) is the nation's first digital platform dedicated entirely to the memory of more than 4.8 million Veterans interred in VA's national cemeteries. In 2023, we added more than 300,000 service members and Veterans interred in 27 Department of Defense-managed cemeteries into VLM. By far, the largest number of these additional Veterans and service members are interred in Arlington National Cemetery.

Launched in 2019, individual Veteran profile pages are populated with military service and cemetery information. Publicly available information gathered from VA records includes service branch with logo, dates of birth and death, rank, war period, decorations, emblem of belief, and cemetery information.

Interactive features allow family, friends, and the public to submit Tributes (comments), images, biographical information, and historical documents; create their Veteran's military service and personal achievements timeline; and generate a Word Cloud that describes their Veteran. The site also allows visitors to share Veteran profile pages by email and post them to social media, and users can "Follow a Veteran" to receive email alerts when new content is added to that Veteran's page.
