Department: Veteran's Services

Veterans, their spouses and dependent children may be buried at state veterans cemeteries operated by Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs (WDVA).

WDVA currently operates three State Veterans Cemeteries. State veterans cemeteries are located near Union Grove (Racine County), near Spooner (Washburn County), and at the Wisconsin Veterans Home at King (Waupaca County).

The eligibility for burial is based on the past military service established as a veteran, national guard member or reservist with honorable active-duty service, military disability ratings or those who have at least 20 years of service towards retirement.

Burial of an eligible veteran is at no cost to the veteran. A fee is charged at the time of interment for spouses and dependent children of eligible veterans. Veterans are encouraged to establish eligibility and pre-register for interment by contacting one of the cemeteries. There is no cost or obligation for pre-registration.

For more information, contact the Veterans Office or visit the WDVA website at:
