Search Fort Stanton State Veterans Cemetery:

The Ft. Stanton State Veterans Cemetery, New Mexico’s first state-managed cemetery for honorably discharged veterans and their spouses, opened on November 6, 2017 at 1:30pm.

The cemetery features 650 in-ground crypts and 480 columbarium niches for cremated remains. It was built through an application sent by the state to the VA’s Cemetery Grants Program which provides funding for VA-funded but state-managed cemeteries for rural areas.

Located next to the Ft. Stanton Merchant Marine Military Cemetery, the two are separate cemeteries.
