Final Real Estate: National Cemetery Expansion

New, 6 comments

Apparently, the Los Angeles National Cemetery (the one between the 405 and the West LA VA) hasn't taken new burials in about a decade. But recently the Dept. of Veterans Affairs got ahold of 13 new acres and is working on an expansion "to accommodate new interments for the next 90 years." DJC Oregon reports: "The cemetery will no longer accept ground burials – except for spouses of those already buried. Instead, all new interments will be in urns of cremated ashes placed in columbarium walls. This design will allow about as many interments in the 13 new acres as in the existing 114 acres." Ground will break on the first phase in March. [DJC Oregon, image via]
