VLB Texas State Veterans Cemeteries are hallowed grounds that are an expression of our respect for the Texas men and women who have served our nation with distinction. They are exclusively for veterans, their spouse, and dependent children. They are special resting places, close to home, where friends, family and fellow Texans can honor Texas Veterans.
The sacrifices they laid upon the altar of freedom will never be diminished nor forgotten.
The staff at our state cemeteries are there to help each Texas veteran and their family at their time of need. Burial benefits at Texas State Cemeteries are identical to those at federal VA cemeteries.
Each cemetery has opportunities for community and veterans volunteers. Please contact a cemetery directly to learn more.
Texas state cemeteries are built through a partnership between the State of Texas and the federal VA, and are managed by the Veterans Land Board. They complement the four national cemeteries in San Antonio, Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth and El Paso.
