The State of Maryland and the Maryland Department of Veterans Affairs (MDVA) are honored to offer our veterans and their eligible dependents a final resting place at one of five MDVA state veterans cemeteries.

The MDVA State Veterans Cemetery Program is one of the largest state cemetery programs in the nation with locations in Allegany County, Anne Arundel County, Baltimore County, Dorchester County, and Prince George’s County.

The Maryland Fiscal Year 2021 ended June 30, 2021, and during the year, 2,329 Veterans and 1,407dependents were interred or inurned at MDVA cemeteries, which was an increase over previous years.  It is the most solemn duty of the MDVA Cemetery staff to care for those entrusted to our care.

The Memorials program staff are responsible for several Maryland Memorials: the World War II Memorial, the Korean War Memorial, the Vietnam War Memorial, and the Gold Star Families Monument.  MDVA has seen an increase in individuals and groups volunteering to help at the Memorials in the last year, including landscaping and clean-up activities.  We appreciate the many people who have volunteered to help us keep the Memorials in excellent condition.
