FAQ's

How Do I Participate?

Veterans or family members wishing to participate should complete a Service Data Form Town of Colonie, NY Veterans database download file and provide a photograph of the veteran. Digital files can be emailed or if a digital photograph is not available, applicants can bring one 8" x 10" (or smaller) photograph of the veteran (preferably in uniform) to one of the data collection locations. The photo will then be digitally scanned by a volunteer and returned while you wait. The database of service information will be created from the facts collected on the Service Data Forms. The entire process should only take a few minutes.
