- The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is moving forward with a plan to provide full burial services to small rural Veteran populations where there is no available burial option from either a VA national, state or tribal Veterans cemetery....The Rural Initiative plan is to build small National Veterans Burial Grounds in rural areas where the unserved Veteran population is less than 25,000 within a 75-mile radius. VA's current policy for establishing new national cemeteries is to build where the unserved Veteran population is 80,000 or more within a 75-mile radius.
Over the next six years VA plans to open eight National Veterans Burial Grounds in the Fargo, North Dakota; Rhinelander, Wisconsin; Cheyenne, Wyoming; Laurel, Montana; Idaho Falls, Idaho; Cedar City, Utah; Calais, Maine; and Elko, Nevada areas. A National Veterans Burial Ground will be a small three to five acre NCA-managed section within an existing public or private cemetery. NCA will provide a full range of burial options and control the operation and maintenance of these lots. These sections will be held to the same National Shrine Standards as VA national cemeteries.
VA estimates that there are nearly 136,000 Veterans within the 75-mile area service radius of the eight locales identified to receive a National Veterans Burial Grounds. Increasing access to burial benefits will help NCA to reach its strategic goal to make a VA burial option available to 94 percent of Veterans within a reasonable distance (75 miles) of their residence.
