Service members who die while on active duty and veterans are eligible for burial in a national cemetery. Spouse & minor children are eligible to be buried with their sponsor.
Today’s veterans number 24 million:
9+ million, mostly WW II and Korean War vets, forecast to die by 2033
1600 WW II (our “greatest generation”) veterans die every day
No national cemetery within 100 driving miles of Central Coast cities
When a National Cemetery burial is not available, a Veteran’s family bear the burden of burial costs.
For example, these are the 2008 costs for a burial in the Lompoc Cemetery.
