The Maryland Veterans Commission is composed of five members
appointed by the Governor, all of whom must be veterans. The Com-
mission appoints the State Service Officer, who serves as administra-
tive director of the agency. The State Commanders of the American
Legion, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the Disabled American Vet-
erans, and the Spanish-American War Veterans serve as an advisory
committee to the Commission.

The Commission administers a fund, appropriated annually, to pro-
vide the necessities of life to distressed veterans, widows of veterans
and their infant children, to provide medical care for those who are
ill, and funeral expenses for deceased veterans. The agency also
assists veterans and their dependents in securing federal aid to which
they may be entitled. The Commission is further responsible for the
maintenance of a permanent registry of graves of all persons who
served in the military or naval forces of the country in time of war
and are buried in Maryland (Code 1947 Supp., Art. 96%, secs. 3-7).
The Commission, in addition to its main office, has information centers
located in the following cities:
