Jacksonville Veteran's Cemetary

Veterans Cemetery Opens

After 16 years of planning and preparation, the Jacksonville National Cemetery officially opened as the remains of eight veterans, including the first female surgical technician in Vietnam and her husband, were laid to rest. The veteran cemetery is the nation's 127th, and about 150 families have already expressed interest in burial there. The 20-acre early burial area with temporary facilities begins the first phase of the planned 526-acre site.
