A new national cemetery for veterans has opened in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The national cemetery, named Washington Crossing National Cemetery, will eventually become the final resting place for thousands of soldiers and veterans who served their country.
Washington Crossing opened Wednesday, with the burial of seven veterans. The expansive cemetery can accommodate more than 200,000 deceased veterans. There also are allowances for veterans’ spouses and children.
Each gravesite will be marked by a three-foot stone with the veteran’s information. There is no cost for veterans to be buried at Washington Crossing, but the veteran must have served 180 days in the military in order to qualify for burial at the national cemetery.
This cemetery could be a valuable service for disabled veterans and their families, who often have to cope with numerous financial and medical difficulties as a result of service-related injuries and illnesses.
