The Texas Veterans Land Board held its annual holiday wreath-laying ceremonies to honor and remember our nation’s military heroes at each of our four VLB Texas State Veterans Cemeteries. One holiday wreath was placed on every grave, monument and columbarium at our cemeteries in Abilene, Corpus Christi, Killeen and Mission.

The community response was overwhelming. More than 800 community members came out to help at the Killeen wreath-laying. Anyone interested in helping with wreath- or flag-laying events at the VLB cemeteries should go to the VLB events pages about future events.

In 2019, the U.S. Veterans Administration awarded more than $8 million in expansion grants to the VLB Texas State Cemeteries. The grants expansion improvements included columbarium walls for cremated remains and a Memorial Wall. The most recent grants awarded in October went to the Rio Grande Valley and the Abilene cemeteries.
