Purple Heart Hall of Honor
The National Purple Heart Hall of Honor is currently under construction in New York's Hudson River Valley at the New Windsor Cantonment State Historic Site. Its mission is to collect and preserve the stories of Purple Heart recipients from all branches of the service and across the generations in an attempt to ensure that all recipients are represented. Their stories will be preserved and shared through exhibits, live and videotaped interviews with the veterans themselves, and the Roll of Honor, an interactive computer program preserving the stories of each individual. The National Purple Heart Hall of Honor the first in the nation to recognize the more than 800,000 Americans wounded or killed in action while serving in the United States Military.

VA Announces New Survivor Benefits Web Site
WASHINGTON – The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has created a new Internet Web site for the surviving spouses and dependents of military personnel who died on active duty and for the survivors and dependents of veterans who died after leaving the military.

The Web site is organized into two broad categories – death in service and death after service.  It provides visitors with information about a wide range of benefits for the surviving spouse, dependent children, and dependent parents of deceased veterans and active-duty personnel.  The site also has information from -- and links to -- other federal agencies and organizations that offer benefits and services to survivors and dependents.

The new website can be found at www.vba.va.gov/survivors or by clicking the “Survivors Benefits” button on the left panel of www.vba.va.gov.
