the 120 Department of Veterans Affairs' national cemeteries may be
searched for burial locations. There are four cemeteries that have not
completed their records. They include: Long Island; Los Angeles; Ft.
Rosecrans; and the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. Some
interments, therefore, will not be listed.
Arlington National Cemetery records are also available for interments
that occurred after 1999. As more records are added to the database, more
burial information will become available. Some state veterans cemeteries
can also be searched.
If your search returns incorrect information about the deceased, please
contact the national cemetery
or the state cemetery in
question directly to discuss your findings.
