NCA honors Veterans and their families with final resting places in national shrines and with lasting tributes that commemorate their service and sacrifice to our Nation.
NCA will be the model of excellence for burial and memorials for our Nation’s Veterans and their families.
The purpose of the NCA is to provide burial space for Veterans and their eligible family members. To maintain national cemeteries as national shrines, sacred to the honor and memory of those interred or memorialized there. To mark Veterans’ graves with a Government-furnished headstone, marker or medallion and to provide Presidential Memorial Certificates in recognition of their service to a grateful nation.
Lastly the NCA administers grants for establishing or expanding state and tribal government veterans cemeteries.
