Government Information on Veterans

Veterans play an important role in the history and current policymaking environment of the U.S. and other countries.  After returning from military service, they often face acute challenges finding work, dealing with service related physical and mental health problems, gaining access to appropriate education, and reintegrating into society.  Governments at all levels of U.S. society are involved in efforts to assist veterans and produce voluminous amounts of literature describing these programs.  Sometimes these programs are successful and sometimes they fail causing significant harm to veterans and to society at large.  This guide will provide access to government information resources dealing with veterans and veterans policymaking.  Examples of subject searches you can do in the Purdue Libraries online catalog to find information on veterans include:

United States Dept of Veterans Affairs
