State Rep. Ken Borton and the Michigan House of Representatives today approved a plan to open a new cemetery for veterans in Northern Michigan.
The proposed state veterans cemetery in Crawford County would fill a critical need. Currently, two federal veterans cemeteries in Michigan are open for new interments, both located in the southern part of the state — one near Battle Creek and the other in Holly.
“After answering the call of duty and dedicating their lives to our country, Northern Michigan veterans deserve to have a fitting final resting place available for them,” said Borton, R-Gaylord. “Establishing a dedicated veterans cemetery in our region will help us honor the men and women from Up North who served in our armed forces.”
