Presidential Memorial Certificates

Niles Library's Business Services Librarian, Judith McNulty,  points out that since 1962 these
engraved paper certificates, signed by the  President, have been issued upon request to honor the memory of honorably discharged deceased Veterans. She received the certificate below for her father who was a World War II Navy veteran.



This program was initiated in March 1962 by President John F. Kennedy and has been continued by all subsequent Presidents. Statutory authority for the program is Section 112, Title 38, of the United States Code.
