The Coastal Bend State Veterans Cemetery in Corpus Christi is located on 54 acres donated by Flint Hills Resources through Nueces County to the Texas Veterans Land Board. The cemetery is located on the southeast corner of Carbon Plant Road and IH-37. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs awarded $8.45 million to build the facility which is managed by the VLB.

The cemetery includes a covered, open-air structure for committal services; a visitor's center; a computer kiosk for locating specific graves; an assembly area for special occasions, such as Memorial Day observances; an avenue of flags; and a memorial walkway for future monuments.

The Groundbreaking Ceremony for the fourth Texas State Veterans Cemetery was held July 23, 2010, with the Dedication Ceremony held December 7, 2011. The first interment took place on December 13, 2011. The initial phase of development contains 30 acres, and 4,800 gravesites. The cemetery will be expanded as needed and will eventually be capable of providing a final resting place for more than 31,000 veterans and family members.
