A Study of the Kingsbridge Veterans' Administration Hospital, Bronx, N.Y., 1922 to 1948
The Congress of the United States as early as 1918, saw the need for improved facilities for the care of the Honorably discharged American Veteran. Therefore, Congress established in 1921, the Veterans’ Bureau which remained in operation until 1930. At that time the Veterans’ Bureau, the Bureau of Pensions, and the National Home for Disabled Soldiers were consolidated into one organization known as the Veterans’ Administration. It was because of their interest in and concern for the wellbeing and happiness of the young men of America, who gave so much, physically and spiritually, in the defense of the American way of life, that Congress authorized the organization of the Veterans’ Administration. The results of its work can be readily seen today. There are a number of Veterans’ Hospitals throughout the country under the supervision of the Veterans’ Administration, attempting to promote the social, moral and physical welfare of Veterans still in need of rehabilitation.
