>> On this edition of "The American Veteran" -- V.A. partners with to digitize burial records from historic national cemeteries. A look at how V.A. and D.O.D. have been working together to optimize patient care by sharing healthcare records. A look at the origin of Memorial Day. And meet a formerly homeless Marine who got his life back on track with the help of V.A. >> Welcome to The American Veteran brought to you by the Department of Veterans Affairs. We bring you this edition from the studio of the Defense Media Activity at Fort Meade, Maryland. Home of the television and news programming for all branches of the military. The Department of Veterans Affairs has partnered with the internet-based genealogy research firm to bring ancient burial records from historical national cemeteries into the digital age. Jennifer Perunko: We knew from Jennifer Perunko: We knew from our visits to the National Cemeteries that some directors had held on to historic burial ledgers. Many of them, date back to the mid to late-1860's. Trevor Plante: We have approximately 160 ledgers that were maintained by the quartermaster of the U.S. Army and those were transferred to the National Archives probably in the late-1930's. More recently the Veteran's Administration identified 60 more that were spread across the nation in various National Cemeteries. Perunko: We digitized over 9,000 pages. Once the ledgers were digitized we packaged up the ledgers and sent them to the National Archives and Records Administration for safekeeping. Ancestry has been working with the National Archives for a number of years, digitizing records that they find are important to genealogists. We told them we had all these burial ledgers that were digitized that we could provide for them if they in turn would index them for us. Sabrina Petersen: We've actually combined the 60 ledgers that the National Cemetery Administration had already digitized with the ones that NARA held themselves. And it's part of our collection online that you can search. It's called the U.S. Burial Registers, Military Posts, National Cemeteries 1862-1960. Currently on there are over 230 million military records. This collection alone is over 550,000. Rich Carney: 144 volumes of burial registers were shipped from the National Archives in DC to Ancestry's office in Silver Spring, Maryland. The Archives maintained custody of those records through the shipment and through the scanning process. And seven Archives technicians went through each volume, page by page, to make sure that all the information that was necessary for veterans to do research was visible and could safely be imaged by camera operators. Petersen: The indexing took over 3000 hours to key the individual records and the names. We have people here that are trained on how to handle these documents by the National Archives staff. They specifically teach us how to handle the records, how to support the books, how to support each page so there's no question that anything will ever be damaged. We go page by page. We save each of the pages at a high resolution, and then we combined those with the indexes that we already created. And the two are served up on for the veterans to find their records. Perunko: The benefit to V.A. and to NCA in particular was the indexing of these records. Previously you would have to know where someone was buried and go search them out in that cemetery's burial ledger. Now we have the ability to just go online, type in a name to their search engine and find out where that soldier is buried. This one is the third page of C's for Newburg National Cemetery in North Carolina and there is a Charles W. Churchill. But what we can now do with Ancestry is we can go to the U.S. burial registers, military posts and national cemeteries 1862 to 1960 on and type in his name. And first we have all the indexed information, his name his death date the cemetery ledger the burial place the age of death and the birth year and then we can pull up the actual page of the Newburn burial register that shows Charles W. Churchill. Perunko: We wanted to get the ledgers out of the hands of the cemeteries. We wanted to get them out of daily use. A lot of them were already falling apart. Some had been inexpertly taped back together. Plante: One of our main missions is preserving the documentation and the records that we have for future researchers and your grandchildren and great grandchildren so they can come in and see the same records that researchers are looking at today. Petersen: For people to connect with their families and connect with that past is very important and we are very proud to be able to offer that to the Veterans Administration through NARA. Petersen: The partnership between the National Cemetery administration, the National Archives and Records Administration and is invaluable. >> The historic preservation of these priceless burial ledgers is part of the National Cemetery Administration's celebration of the Civil War Sesquicentennial, commemorating 150 years. For more than a decade, V.A. and the Department of Defense have been working to simplify the process of sharing patient information. The goal is to optimize patient care at - and between - both institutions. Today, the result of those combined efforts is visible at sites across the U.S. The V.A. Medical Center in Richmond, Virginia, is one of 13 sites involved in a pilot program designed to provide Veterans and those who care for them with faster, more secure health information exchanges. Pat Rudd: As a nurse, it has been very helpful to be able to log in and look at real time information as the patient is preparing to come so that our staff is prepared. >> For example -when Army Sergeant Marc Owens arrived here from a military medical center, his care team was already fully informed about his medical history. Rudd: With this particular case, it was an example of the D.O.D. sharing information coming in at exactly the right time. Marc Owens: The nurses greeted me with open arms and they took me in like a part of their family. I really felt comfortable coming down here.X you have to tell him what your timeline is. >> Sergeant Owen's attending physician at Richmond is Ajit Pai. Ajit Pai, MD: More and more, the V.A. and DOD are looking to bring patients and families into their care on a very active basis. In order to do that, having the information that we get from Walter Reed or from any other military treatment facility will help us do that. Owens: I think the doctors were on point with my medical background. I think each and every one of them read my record to see where I came from and to where I needed to be. >> V.A.'s system-wide director for the sharing initiative is Cliff Freeman. Cliff Freeman: What we want to do is make sure that all health data that V.A. and D.O.D. have is electronic, and that we can share it with each other so that the clinician in our facility has access to it when a Veteran shows up for healthcare. >> The goal is to provide secure, real-time patient information exchanges to every military and V.A. treatment facility as well as private- sector health care providers that treat Veterans and military members. Rudd: The sharing agreement helps tremendously with the continuity of care for our patients coming from the military to the V.A. >> V.A.'s advances in information sharing are helping physicians make quicker, more informed decisions. And that means better health care outcomes for the Veterans across the V.A. system. Homelessness is an issue that affects many Veterans and V.A. is here to help. In this video, a formerly homeless Marine recounts his journey, a story that I hope you find as inspirational as we did. [sirens] George Hill: I went to the Marine Corps at the age of nineteen because I noticed that the opportunities in my neighborhood was just not available at all. Something about the Marines just allured me, so I decided to go in and I did, I did fairly well. I really liked it. I loved being in the Marine Corps. I could see that my life began to change when I was stationed in Korea for a while at the -- at the DMZ in this town called Yay Chan. you know, it started off with -- uh -- with alcohol usage which was in a way kind of sanctioned. after I got out there with no limits that's when my addictions and substance abuse and in my, and in my knowledge now, my -- my mental illness is that they all caused my performance to spiral. After discharge, I wound up working for a company building helicopters. I wound up and eventually resigning before I got terminated. My drug and alcohol usage was a constant progression until such time as I became completely homeless but you never see it coming. Life on the streets it is one of the most miserable things that I've ever been through. Having to use the bathroom behind a dumpster. I remember having rats jumping all over me and then I just wake up and, "Oh, it's just a rat." And then I cover up tighter so it doesn't get under the cover with me, and going back to sleep. But, there is nothing more miserable than when the rains and you have nowhere to go. My family didn't know if I was dead or alive for five years. They hadn't seen me in ten years. What consumed my life more than anything else trying to get and attain more drugs to feed my ever increasing drug dependence. At 3:00 in the morning I walked down this street actually I think I was going to buy some drugs 'cause they were selling some somewhere up in here. And I remember walking, I couldn't believe it, and I looked at all four corners and somebody's being robbed at the same time. I said, "Man, what am I doing here?" Being homeless was the most violent thing I've lived through. It was more violent than any other thing that I've dealt with. When you're homeless, you have to know how to establish bounds without seeming to challenge someone, because they are someone that just the fact that they are challenged, then you've got to kill them or they have to try and kill you, I mean it's ridiculous. You never know what you're going to run into. I've seen people killed for the last swallow of wine, the last three or four puffs of a cigarette, for a quarter. It is a struggle to stay alive. [singing "Amazing Grace"] >> â™a I once was lost But now I'm found Was blind But now I see â™a I had gotten out of being incarcerated for a violation and then I'm down at Skid Row. Now I see homeless, and you see homeless all the time, but you never really see that are so bad off that they have rags tied on their feet.This particular person have rags tied on their feet. I remember seeing him and thinking, I sure feel sorry for him. He walked down and he looked down at me and snarled and just jammed his hand in his pocket and pulled out the dollar and change that was all he had shoved it at me said, "Here, man! I feel sorry for you!!" And something about that got me. What did he see in me that made him feel sorry for me out of all these people to feel sorry for? And something about that just did not settle well with me. From that very moment, I didn't want another drink, I didn't want any drugs, I didn't want any -- from that moment. and I can actually truthfully say that. And I took that dollar and change and I got on the bus and came to the West Los Angeles V.A. Medical Center, and my life has changed from that moment Right now, I'm presently attending two schools. I'm attending, uh, Santa Monica College for one portion of my computer Information systems and I'm a junior at Cal State LA, um, also in computer information systems. I work for the Department of Veterans Affairs as a computer assistant. Okay, I'll take care of that for you. I'm able to, at my job, help people with their computer problems. I know every software, I know everything about how to repair the computers. When someone has a need, I'm able to fill that need with computer knowledge. At the end of the day, I'm able to go home. I'm able to turn the key, and I can go sit down and be safe, free, comfortable, clean and open a refrigerator that's filled with food. Who'd have thought it? >> V.A. has established a national call center for homeless Veterans or Veterans at-risk of becoming homeless. Counselors are available 24/7 at Call 1-877-4AID VET 1-877-424- 3838. The Frank Buckles Memorial Act is named in of honor America's last living World War I veteran. At his request, the World War I memorial foundation was formed to honor the nearly 5 million Americans that served in the War to End All Wars. This video examines the vision of the foundation and its desired impact on the future education of Veterans in America. The Frank Buckles Memorial Act is named in of honor America's last World War I Veteran. At his request, the World War I memorial foundation was formed to honor not himself, but the 5 million Veterans that served during the Great War. David: Frank asked if we could come up with a way to have a memorial, to all of the other Americans that served. The nearly 5 million of them that served during World War I, so that every school child that comes to the National Mall for their one big trip of their class, every person who visits from another nation or anywhere in the United States that goes to this nucleus of education which is the National Mall will learn a complete and comprehensive story of the sacrifice and valor of the veterans of the 20th Century. >> For the men, who spent months in rotting trenches, to the unknown soldiers who died in Flanders Fields. The pilots, the sailors, the marines. The nurses and doctors. Our grandparents, fathers, mothers, and loved ones. David: At the end of the day, having a memorial is the only lasting reminder that is tangible, that is physical, that people can go to and reflect on and pay their honor and respect to the generation that served. Ted Poe: To make sure we preserve the integrity of the mall, we capped the size of the memorial to no bigger than an acre and a half. We also place the memorial on the Constitution Gardens area. This is a perfect place to the World War I Memorial. It should sit, or it would sit between the Vietnam Memorial, the World War II Memorial. The Korean and D.C. Memorials are across the Reflecting Pool. The history behind this spot is fitting, during World War I the United States Navy and munitions department used this very site as their administration buildings. This bill would build a World War I memorial on the very grounds from where our nation organized that war effort. >> Frank's dream was to have a memorial on the national mall, that honored every American soldier from World War I. The National park service has declared the mall as a place "to honor our nation's veterans, to make their voices heard, and to celebrate our nation's commitment to freedom and equality." David: With the concept of placing a National World War I Memorial to the veterans that served in Constitution Gardens, in that area, it centralizes everything right there. So the children that visit the mall or the tour groups that visit the mall could chronologically walk around the mall and learn of all of the wars of the 20th century, all of the sacrifice of the 20th century. We can learn from all of the other powerful memorials on the mall and what Frank always asked for was to have a simple memorial that is elegant and it doesn't need to be big it just needs to be there so that people can pause and reflect and learn. >> So as the world watches, and our allies prepare for their centennial of World War I, here in America, we are anxious to show the world how we honor the legacy of our veterans. >> The Civil War claimed more American lives than any conflict in U.S. history, prompting the establishment of the country's first national cemeteries. By the late-1860's various towns and cities had begun holding springtime tributes to these countless soldiers, decorating their graves with flowers. Let's take a look at how this tribute to our fallen troops began. >> "The muffled drum's sad roll has beat the soldier's last tattoo. No more on life's parade shall meet that brave and fallen few." As we commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, we prepare to honor these brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice on the battlefield. Three years after the end of the Civil War in 1868, "Decoration Day" was founded as a time for the nation to come together to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers. As commander-in-chief of the-- Cemetery. The first funeral was occurred atattendedon national by dignitaries like general Ulysses S rants. Flowers were spread on both Union and Confederate graves, in honor of the fallen heroes. The tradition of placing small American flags atop each grave began on this day as well. It was not until after World War I however, that the day was expanded to honor those who had died in all American wars. In 1966, President Lyndon Johnson declared that the "official birthplace" of Memorial Day would be Waterloo, New York, where local Civil War veterans were honored in 1866 100 years earlier. This was considered to be the first formal, on-going, community-wide event. In 1971, Congress declared Memorial Day a national holiday and placed it on the last Monday in May. In December, 2000, the "National Moment of Remembrance Act" was placed into law. This National Moment of Remembrance encourages all Americans to pause for a minute of silence to remember and honor those who have died in service to the nation. Back in 1868, General Logan advised his people to "guard their graves with sacred vigilance, let no neglect, no ravages of time testify that we have forgotten the cost of a free and undivided republic." This year Memorial Day, falls on May 27 and the national moment of rememberence is held at 3 p.. local time. This memorial day, let's all take a day to honor the brave mn and women who died serving our country. If you're a Veteran who's troubled in some way, please call the Veterans Crisis Line at 1-800-273-TALK. That's 1-800-273-8255. And that concludes this edition of "The American Veteran."
