Digital memorials for all veterans in US national cemeteries

3.7 million US Veterans interred in 136 National Cemetery Administration cemeteries are memorialized in a new free website.
Search fields available are name (required), branch of service, war, location and additional information in an advanced search.
Each veteran's page includes their name, dates of birth (not given for my British-born ancestor) and death, last rank held, service branch, cemetery, address and contact information for the cemetery, section of the cemetery they are interred in and the date of their internment.
Upcoming features will include the ability to add tribute messages, photographs and more to individual profiles.

For a plain version, you can go to Nationwide Gravesite Locator. That will give you name, rank, branch of service, conflict (as needed), date of birth, date of death, location of grave, name and location of cemetery.
I am trying to find out how, if possible, a spouse of a U.S. Air Force veteran buried at Ohio Western Reserve National Cemetery can be recognized for her many years of service in the British Royal Air Force.
