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!
