Veterans of World War II and later conflicts
The government provided similar services to veterans of World War II. Given that many of these veterans (or their spouses or siblings) are still living, Department of Veterans' Affairs case files are usually only made available to the veteran or members of their immediate family. They are not usually suitable for general public release. For further information about access to case files, see Fact sheet 54 – Veterans' case files, available on the Archives' website.
