A veteran who is discharged under honorable conditions may be eligible for interment at the cemetery. As a general rule, an honorably discharged veteran, having served on active duty prior to September 7, 1980 is eligible. After September 7, 1980, a veteran must have served at least 24 months on active duty to be eligible. However, there are some exceptions. Members of Reserve Components and Reserve Officers' Training Corps also may be eligible under many different circumstances. All veterans should apply and let us determine your eligibility. Spouses and dependents may also be eligible.
You are encouraged to pre-apply for internment at the Veterans Cemetery. The application process is simple and saves surviving family members the hardship of finding required documents needed prior to interment. Without an application, we may have to delay the interment until substantial proof is submitted. The veteran submitting an application will receive an eligibility certificate, which also may include eligibility for dependents.
