National Shrines

Eligibility

Veterans with other than dishonorable discharges, their spouses and dependent children may be eligible for burial in a VA national cemetery. Reservists and National Guard members members with 20 years qualifying service (who are entitled to retired pay or would be entitled if at least 60 years of age), have earned the honor of burial in a national cemetery. Service members who die on active duty may also be buried in a national cemetery.

Military Honors

Military honors are provided by the Department of Defense and are arranged in advance by the family or their representative. National Cemetery staff will be pleased to assist in arranging for the honors to be provided, if available.

Gravesites in VA national cemeteries cannot be reserved in advance. Families are encouraged to prepare in advance by discussing cemetery options, by collecting the veteran's military information and by calling the cemetery where burial is desired prior to the time of need.

Funeral Directors or one of your local veteran's service organizations will assist you with making burial arrangements.
