Frequently Asked Questions
I have lost all of my military information. I would like to find out about my life insurance policy if I have one through the military and also information about being buried at the federal cemetery in Leavenworth. Do I have any benefits that I could be using right now? I need a veterans military card with my number to show I was in the military.
Many veterans benefits depend on your length in the service, and the time since you were discharged, so without more details I can’t tell you if you have benefits you could be using. The good news, though, is that you can order your military personnel records from the National Archives in St. Louis and then use those to get an ID card and sign up for any benefits that you have remaining.
