Very interesting article to me, and one to which I am very grateful that someone is considering it. I haven't given much thought to the closest veteran's cemetary. So out of curiosity I found this VA website.
this lets you find veterans cemetery near you. I never knew how few there are in the west. This doesn't show the cemeteries run by the individual states.
what do you guys think? Is this worth spending tax dollars on? It's almost rhetorical, I think I know what everyone would say, but I am curious about your comments.
The biggest advantage I see to veteran cemeteries is that the veteran's spouse can be buried in the same plot. Now that our pensions are going to be cut, this might be the only way I can afford to die.
