Many states have established state veteran cemeteries. Even though they may have been established or improved with Government Funding through the Veterans Administration State Cemetery Grants Program, state veteran cemeteries are run solely by the states in which they are located. Should you have any questions or comments about any of these cemeteries, please contact the specific cemetery for information.
Headstones and markers are provided by the Department of Veteran''s Affairs (VA) free of charge, to mark the unmarked graves of eligible veterans buried in any cemetery, national, state or private. Headstones and markers that are deteriorated, illegible, stolen, vandalized, incorrectly inscripted or are of poor material and workmanship, are replaced at government expense.
The VA''s links to the forms you need to complete to request markers for eligible veterans are available by going to the VA BENEFITS FORMS page. You will also find forms here to apply for assistance in meeting the funeral and burial costs of a deceased veteran, for eligibility for burial in a national cemetery, to request information on requirements to permit a burial in a NATIONAL CEMETERY, to request a burial flag and more.
