The people of the United States have always held a tradition, mandated by law, that those who serve the
country in the armed services, especially in time of war, shall receive consideration and care when
they are in need. The hospitals maintained by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs have filled the
needs of acutely ill or injured veterans. But a different type of facility is needed for aging or
chronically disabled veterans.
The State of Alabama is extending this special kind of care to veterans through a partnership with the
federal government and private industry by proudly operating four state-of-the-art Veterans Homes located within the state.
The Bill Nichols State Veterans Home
in Alexander City has been "home" to hundreds of veterans since its
opening in 1989. In July 1995, Alabama opened two more homes to
veterans, the Floyd E. "Tut" Fann State Veterans
Home in Huntsville and the William F. Green
State Veterans Home in Bay Minette. In November 2012, the
Colonel Robert L. Howard State Veterans Home
opened in Pell City.
The Alabama State Veterans Homes are a very affordable solution for you
or your loved ones. Applications may be obtained from your local
Veterans Service Office, contacting the facility,
or you may download the application from this website.
