THE VA WAS CREATED ON THIS DAY IN 1930

 va-1930

The establishment of the Veterans Administration (VA) came in 1930 when
Congress authorized President Hoover to "consolidate and coordinate
Government activities affecting war veterans." The three component
agencies became bureaus within the Veterans Administration. Brigadier
General Frank T. Hines, who directed the Veterans Bureau for seven
years, was named as the first Administrator of Veterans Affairs, a job
he held until 1945.
