The History of the
Sampson Veterans Memorial Cemetery
The origin of the Sampson Veterans Memorial Cemetery began when a number of World War II Navy Veterans, led by the late Steven Bull, and Air Force veterans
Sailors trained at Sampson fought and participated in every major naval battle of World War II. The base was later used as an Air Force Basic Training Center.
The Sampson WWII Navy Veterans Museum is located at the site and down the road is the former Seneca Army Depot, which served as an ammunition and storage supply facility during World War II, the Vietnam War, Korean Conflict and Gulf War.
