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 thousands of veterans since its opening in November 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.
