State Veterans Cemetery Groundbreaking

01:00 pm - 12/19/2017

@ CT Veterans' Affairs

287 West St
Rocky Hill CT  06067



Join us as we celebrate the groundbreaking on two important projects at the State Veterans Cemetery in Middletown, Tuesday, December 19th at 1:00 p.m.

The DVA received two grants from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (USDVA), National Cemetery Administration, Veterans Cemetery Grants Program totaling more than $8.6 million. One grant, the appearance grant, will raise, realign, and clean more than 7,000 existing headstones and improve turf throughout cemetery grounds. The expansion grant will add 2,000 preplaced crypts, a new roadway, updates to the cemetery entrance, and repair the existing irrigation system.

The two projects are 100 percent federally-reimbursed and are critical to increasing the capacity and longevity of the cemetery; allowing more Connecticut Veterans the opportunity to choose the State Veterans Cemetery as their dignified place of rest.

All are welcome!
