Meeting the Memorial Needs of Virginia Veterans: An Analysis of Existing and Proposed Cemetery Sites

Author

Abstract

This report evaluates the burial needs of Virginia\'s veterans. It describes the locations and capacities of cemeteries that serve veterans who reside in Virginia, evaluates the need for additional burial capacity, identifies an optimal location for a new state cemetery, and examines the issues to consider in procuring additional property for cemetery expansion. It also investigates the role of cost and marketing/outreach efforts in shaping veteran burial choices and the potential effect of expanding interment eligibility to out-of-state residents.
