Today we recognize veterans and all of those who have offered military service. Odum Library’s first floor exhibit cases currently feature a display of our World War II books, documents, posters, and media in honor of all veterans.

As a Federal Depository Library, Odum’s Government Documents collection includes many publications about veterans, including these hearings:

Veterans’ history and needs extend beyond Veterans Day, of course. The Library of Congress invites public participation in the Veterans History Project. Veteran Brian McGough describes ways to help veterans after Veterans Day.

The Department of Veterans Affairs provides an online database to search for the burial locations of veterans, including National and other military cemeteries and private cemeteries in which veterans’ graves are marked.

View more documents about veterans and military service at the Government Documents display, located in the Odum Library 2nd floor Reference area.
