Sacred Ground - Our National Cemeteries


Last year, I attended a burial at Arlington National Cemetery and at the service, the presiding Chaplin described Arlington as sacred ground. All of our national cemeteries are sacred ground. Today is the day that we remember those who died serving our country; many of whom are buried in our national cemeteries. 

There are 131 national cemeteries in and the VA continues to purchase land for new cemeteries. For a list of all of the national cemeteries visit this link at the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.  

To search for the burial location of a veteran, use the Nationwide Gravesite Locator.
