墓碑與標記。無論是位於世界任何地方的國家退伍軍人公墓,美國退伍軍人事務部都將會為符合資格的已故退伍軍人提供墓碑與標記。

 

Headstones or Markers. The VA provides headstones and markers for the graves of veterans anywhere in the world and for eligible dependents of veterans buried in national, state veteran or military cemeteries.

Memorial Plots. If an eligible veteran's remains are not available for burial, the VA will provide a plot and headstone or marker in a national cemetery for memorialization. If you wish to place the memorial in a cemetery other than a national cemetery, the VA will provide the headstone or marker but not the plot itself.
