Many US Veterans Today Make Their Homes in Mexico

History of Veterans Day (historychannel)

Many veterans now reside outside of the United States.  According to the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs' website:

"Some U.S. military Veterans may live outside of the United States after their discharge from the military. This might include Veterans working at American embassies and consulates abroad, those who work for multi-national companies, or those who do so by choice for family reasons. Regardless of your particular circumstances, most VA benefits are payable regardless of your place of residence or nationality. The application process and receipt of benefits may differ somewhat from Veterans who live within the United States."

Mexico has the biggest contingent of Americans residing outside the U.S.A., and there are veterans among them.

In fact, according to Veterans Today, "Mexico is the number one retirement destination for U.S. Veterans outside of the USA by far with the vast majority living in the greater Guadalajara area, specifically in Ajijic on Lake Chapala."

The American Legion, a U.S. veterans' organization, has 12 posts (local chapters) in Mexico.
