2018 Memorial Day Ceremonies at Texas State Veterans Cemeteries

Please join the Texas Veterans Land Board (VLB) at a Texas State Veterans Cemetery near you for a Memorial Day Ceremony. Memorial Day is a time to remember those men and women who served this nation with honor and distinction, and to reflect on the many sacrifices they have made in the defense and liberty of our country.

Texas State Veterans Cemeteries are hallowed grounds that express our respect for those who served, but also provide solace and serenity for the family members and friends that are still living.

We would also like to encourage members of the community to assist with the flag laying at each cemetery in preparation for Memorial Day. See below for dates and times.
