Legion supports action to preserve
future of Arlington National Cemetery
American Legion National Veterans Affairs and Rehabilitation Division
Deputy Director Gerardo Avila testified before the House Military
Personnel Subcommittee on March 8 about the future of Arlington
National Cemetery as it relates to preserving the promise for America’s
“The hallowed grounds of Arlington National Cemetery, which has stood
since the Civil War as the crown jewel of reverence for the fallen men
and women who have served this nation during peace and wartime, is
at a crossroads in its long proud history,” Avila said. “The likelihood that
Arlington, with its150-year history, could cease to operate within the next
three decades is a real possibility.”
Avila said extending the life of Arlington as an active cemetery will
require difficult decisions to be made. In recognizing this reality, The
American Legion passed Resolution No. 93, urging congress to codify
eligibility criteria to be restricted for service members who died in the line
of duty and for other distinguished individuals.
In order to make a significant impact, Avila said the Legion believes
changing the eligibility criteria will require outreach and educating
veterans, service members and their eligible dependents about the tough
choices that will affect the future of Arlington National Cemetery.
Benefit information for survivors
One of the more difficult tasks a survivor faces after the death of a
veteran is completing the numerous claims forms for VA survivors'
benefits. The anxiety and fear of the unknown - who to call, what to do,
or where to go for help - can be an unpleasant experience. To help
ease the burden and to ensure survivors will have the necessary
details for filing a claim, here are some basic quick tips.
The veteran's discharge certificate or DD 214
The veteran's VA claim number or Social Security number
The veteran's death certificate
Government life insurance policy
A copy of all marriage certificates and divorce decrees (if any)
A copy of each child's birth certificate (or adoption order)
The veteran's birth certificate to determine parents' benefits
