INFORMATION CONCERNING BURIALS FOR ALL VETERANS
We would like to inform our families that anyone who is a Veteran or have a family member who has served in the military and would like to be laid to rest at Maryland State Veterans Cemetery, a DD214 Form is necessary. The DD214 form shows the Branch of Service, Identificaton Number; as well as Status of Discharge.
If your loved one does not have DD214, please see attached link for acquiring DD214 in advance www.dd214.us/methods.html If you have your DD214 form available please contact the Veterans cemetery of your choice directly to pre register for Interment. A Pre-interment Program is available for veterans to indicate their desire to be buried in one of the state’s cemeteries. On a pre-need basis this Program provides initial eligibility for burial. Please note that a pre-approved interment letter does not finalize eligibility for burial in a Maryland Veterans Cemetery. The MDVA reserves the right to confirm final eligibility for burial at the time of death. To apply complete the Pre Interment Application and mail to the MDVA Cemetery Program or take to the Maryland Veterans Cemetery where interment is desired.
*Effective Immediately, the Maryland Department of Veterans Affairs Cemetery and Memorial Program does not have a Service Verification Specialist. This courtesy will no longer be provided by the department and verification of service will be the responsibility of the surviving family or their designated representative.
