The Origin of the VA Motto
Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address

With the words,

“To care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow, and his orphan,” President Lincoln affirmed the government’s obligation to care for those injured during the war and to provide for the families of those who perished on the battlefield.

Today, a pair of metal plaques bearing those words flank the entrance to the Washington, D.C. headquarters of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). VA is the federal agency responsible for serving the needs of veterans by providing health care, disability compensation and rehabilitation, education assistance, home loans, burial in a national cemetery, and other benefits and services.

“As it appears in … full read/full credit”

At some later point, this motto was expanded to include all the veterans returning from their service.

I know, I worked for the VA for almost 28 years.

Need I say more?
