Illinois Veterans History Project
The Illinois Veterans History Project was launched by Secretary of State Jesse White
to create a permanent record of the names and stories of Illinois war veterans and
civilians who served our state and country during war, so that their contributions
will not be forgotten.
Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs
The mission of the Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs (IDVA) is to
empower veterans and their families to thrive. We do this by assisting them in
navigating the system of federal state and local resources and benefits;
by providing long-term health care for eligible veterans in our Veterans’ Homes;
and by partnering with other agencies and non-profits to help veterans
address education, mental health, housing, employment, and other challenges.
