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.
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.
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.
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. For information on how to contact one of our
