Sal & Ellen Barbieri <elsal@...>
 

The VA has made it easier & faster for the public to get answers about
family history, old war buddies or famous war heroes. The agency has put on
the web 3.2 million records for veterans buried in 120 national cemeteries
since the civil War. The VA's Nationwide Grave Locator.
www.cem.va.gov also has records for some state veteran's cemeteries &
burials in Arlington National Cemetery since 1999.

The navigator includes names, dates of birth and death, military service
dates, service branch & rank if known, cemetery information & grave location
in the cemetery. The VA will withhold some information, such as next of kin
for privacy purposes. The site will be updated daily. Annually, about 80,000
veterans are buried at national cemeteries.
