1,801,973 images of US veteran pension files. Imagine indexing those! But that is just what those kind folks at FamilySearch have done! The records span the years 1907-1933 for payments to veterans, widows, and their dependents.  As always, searching is free, you can view the original document and searching by just a last name will result in more “hits” because you get name variations.  That is a huge help because sometimes our relatives spelled their last name differently, even among siblings. Another item to note, on my relatives pension card, it states he is an Army Invalid – my gr-gr-grandfather was injured in the Civil War.
