United States National Cemetery System – Tombstone Tuesdays July 16, 2019

Over 7,00 words!

I initially started this as a separate post last month, but decided it deserved to be a Tombstone Tuesdays post – United States National Cemetery System: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_National_Cemetery_System. It may get confusing as there several federal agencies (V. A., NPS, Army National Military Cemeteries) that handle U. S. federal veteran cemeteries as well as many states that maintain state funded, which may or may not receive federal funds to help out, veteran cemeteries. It took a while as I had to research and deal with linking issues. Be aware if you are using https://gravelocator.cem.va.gov/ to find a veteran, there are limits:

The database of burial information is updated each day.

Search for burial locations of veterans and their family members in VA National Cemeteries, state veterans cemeteries, various other military and Department of Interior cemeteries, and for veterans buried in private cemeteries when the grave is marked with a government grave marker.

The Nationwide Gravesite Locator includes burial records from many sources. These sources provide varied data; some searches may contain less information than others. Information on veterans buried in private cemeteries was collected for the purpose of furnishing government grave markers, and we do not have information available for burials prior to 1997.

Erroneous information can be corrected, but we are unable to add to the information contained in the existing record.

If your search returns incorrect information about a veteran or family member buried in a national cemetery, please contact the cemetery directly to discuss your findings.

To report incorrect information about a veteran buried in a private cemetery, click on “Contact Us” at the top of this page. Names cannot be added to the listing if a government grave marker was not furnished for the grave, or if the existing government grave marker was furnished prior to 1997.

NOTE: the above Wikipedia link does not include all of the Army National Military Cemeteries as links. It also doesn’t include cemeteries administered by the American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC). For example, this Top Ten list only includes V. A. cemeteries: https://www.veteranaid.org/blog/10-largest-national-veterans-cemeteries-in-united-states/, based on land area.

It’s important to also note that federal military cemeteries, monuments, and memorials in the U. S. are divided among the V. A., Army National Military Cemeteries (41), American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC), and National Park Service (NPS).  For U. S. military cemeteries in foreign countries, they are run by the  ABMC (see link above). It also doesn’t include U. S. military cemeteries, monuments, and memorials ran by state or local governments.

This post came up as a result of several blog posts by other bloggers where the largest American military cemetery, or second largest one, was mentioned. However, in both cases, the examples were at best only partially correct. They were also both partially incorrect.

Here’s a good source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_National_Cemetery_System as it breaks down who administers each cemetery. However, it doesn’t include 39 of the Army military cemeteries.

If you were to ask me to name the two largest American military cemeteries that were in the United States and its territories, I would ask you to clarify your question with at least the following categories: V. A. (What Are V. A. Cemeteries?) or non-V. A. (while many federal U. S. military cemeteries in the U. S. are run by the V. A., there are a quite a few exceptions and that’s not including any state or local military cemeteries that are not part of the federal V. A. cemetery system); by land area or number of burials (burials including burials, entombments, inurnments, scattering of ashes, etc.); by number of burials per year; and probably a few other categories that I am missing.

In the above example, most people would assume Arlington National Cemetery – https://www.arlingtoncemetery.mil/ as the largest U. S. military cemetery. However, it is not part of the V. A. cemetery system and it’s why you won’t find any burials there listed on the https://gravelocator.cem.va.gov/ site. In terms of burials, it probably is the largest for now. However, it accepts so few new burials due to space limitations, it’s only a matter of time, years or decades, before it falls out of first place. If you go by land area, it’s not in the Top 5, and falls around #9.

Here are some links to Army National Military Cemeteries: https://armycemeteries.army.mil/About-Us/Our-Cemeteries;

Our CemeteriesBelow are some facts about our Army Cemeteries

  • There are a total of 41 Army Cemeteries in 19 States across the country.
  • The United States Army is responsible for the care, maintenance and management of these cemeteries.
  • Each Army Cemetery falls underneath one of Five Army resourcing Headquarters:  The Installation and Material Command (IMCOM), The United States Army Reserve (USAR), The Army Material Command (AMC), The United States Military Academy (USMA) and Arlington National Cemetery (ANC).
  • Each Army cemetery has a unique history in terms of how it originated, how it may have changed hands over the years, as well as who was and is interred there.
  • Each Army Cemetery falls into one of three categories as it relates to their burial status:  Open to new interments, Open to subsequent interments and Closed to any future interments.
  • Army Cemeteries range in size from those having only a small number of individuals interred in their grounds and less than 1/10th of an acre, to the largest, Arlington National Cemetery, which contains over 400,000 and spans 624 acres.
  • Those interred in our Army cemeteries include Native Americans, Civilians, Foreign Military POWs and American service members; spanning nearly every American conflict back to the founding of our nation.
  • Arlington National Cemetery (ANC) is the United States most prominent Army cemetery.  ANC receives, on average, 4 million visitors a year and performs nearly 30 burials a day.

National Cemeteries: Definition of Burial Space

Open

  • This cemetery has space available to accommodate casketed and cremated remains.

Closed

  • This cemetery is closed to new interments. The only interments that are being accepted are subsequent interments for veterans or eligible family members in an existing gravesite. Periodically however, burial space may become available due to a canceled reservation or when a disinterment has been completed. When either of these two scenarios occurs the cemetery will assign such gravesites or columbarium niches to other eligible Veterans or family members at the time of the request. Since there is no way to know in advance when a gravesite may become available, please contact the cemetery at the time of need to inquire whether space is available.

Cremation Only

  • This cemetery has space available for cremated remains. We may be able to accommodate casketed remains in the same gravesite of previously interred family members.

NOTE: Many of the links above will take you outside the VA web site.

State Cemetery Listing

   State Cemeteries

Many states have established state veterans cemeteries. Eligibility is similar to Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) national cemeteries, but may include residency requirements. Even though they may have been established or improved with Government funds through VA’s Veterans Cemetery Grants Program, state veterans cemeteries are run solely by the states. We cannot answer your questions or comments about any of these veterans cemeteries. Please contact the specific cemetery for information.

  • The State has not applied for and received a VA grant to establish, expand or improve this veterans cemetery. The cemetery is owned and operated by a state.

VA Grant Funded Cemetery

  • Grants are used only to establish, expand or improve veterans cemeteries that are owned and operated by a state. Aid is granted only to states, not to private organizations, counties, cities, or other government agencies.
  • VA can provide up to 100 percent of the development cost for an approved project. For establishment of new cemeteries, VA can provide for operating equipment as well. VA cannot pay for acquisition of land.
  • Cemeteries established under the grant program must conform to the standards and guidelines pertaining to site selection, planning, and construction prescribed by VA.
  • Cemeteries must be operated solely for the interment of service members who die on active duty, veterans (as defined by federal law), and their eligible spouses and dependent children. States may impose residency requirements and other limitations to eligibility in addition to those imposed by federal law. State eligibility requirements, however, may not be less stringent than Federal requirements.
  • The administration, operation, and maintenance of a VA-supported state cemetery is solely the responsibility of the state.

We cannot answer your questions or comments about any of these state veterans cemeteries. Please contact the specific cemetery for information.
