About Milwaukee Veterans Affairs
The West Side Soldiers Aid Society was one of the first groups to help returning Civil War Veterans and raised more than $100,000 to build a permanent place of respite.
On March 3, 1865, a month before the Civil War ended, President Abraham Lincoln signed the act that created the National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers. The West Side Soldiers Aid Society provided funding for the construction of a national home to be built in Milwaukee, one of the first three in the country. In May 1867, 60 Veterans moved into existing farm buildings on land that covered 425 acres.
The original domiciliary, affectionately known as Old Main, was completed in 1869. Using one building to serve all the Veterans’ needs was in keeping with the notion of living in a “home.” Old Main originally had a 500-bed capacity. Veterans received continuous care there through 1989.
The grounds saw a construction boom of new buildings in the late 1800s, including a hospital, library, chapel, theater and firehouse. Construction continued in 1923 with building 70, originally for tuberculosis patients; and building 43 in 1932 as a hospital annex. Many of these original buildings were designated as National Historic Landmarks in 2011.
The current 10-story hospital building opened in 1966. At the time, with 1,000 beds, it was one of the largest VA hospitals, with numerous modern features such as built-in oxygen, air conditioning and paging systems. In 1984, it was named after Milwaukee Congressman Clement J. Zablocki.
Almost the entire hospital has been modernized over the last few years. Most recent changes include a revamped and spacious East and South Entrance and Emergency Department.
We serve more than 64,000 Veterans annually. Our care continues on these grounds and in the community today.

American Trenchless was awesome to work with they gave me a great price compared to all the other estimates I... received to replace my old sewer pipe with the Trenchless technology. The installation guys were hard workers, very professional and courteous. Plus the clean up after the project was complete was very good I would recommend this company to anyone they were really good at what the do.read more

Highly recommended. Mark and team (Omar, Derek, Tom) have been easy to work with, very reliable, professional and... thorough. I loved the fact that my yard didn’t need to be dug up - Trenchless is the way to go. Also, great back office support.read more
