This is a privately ran cemetery who profits on our veterans. The state of Texas palm off its responsibilities to a private company to make money on our deceased veterans.
The state has concealed this fact. They do not even post this information on their website.
We need to take back our state veterans cemetery and care for our national veterans. We need to honor them now as they scarificed for us.
This is a state cemetery, not a private cemetery.
This private company argues and disrespects the local VFW organizations. Most veterans who that dies in the service area of the cemetery, will not consider being buried in the RGV Veterans' cemetery. Cehck out the Obits in the Monitor.

Fedjoe got fired from the cemetery. He forgot to tell that. His writing skills were part of the problem.

This is a beautiful, well run, well kept, and respectful place to be buried. Any veteran should consider it for them and their spouse.

My dad is buried at the Veterans Cemetary. I only wish he had had a chance to walk and admite the beauty. He fell ill in August of 2007 and died January 21, 2008. He would have been proud to call this cemetary his final resting place.

yes...its a private run cemetery but it is regulated by the Texas Veterans Land Board and is subject to inspections so if they're still up and running that means all is good. many veterans in the rgv still are unaware that this cemetery is available to them.... like myself.... i heard by word of mouth. the cemetery looks amazing! fedjoe...stay in AZ

We just formed part of the civilian response to the interment of the boy from Zapata who was killed in Afghanistan on the 6th of January,2011.
The cemetery on the edge of Mission, Texas is stunningly presentable...I would even say elegant. One feels like, if there are ghosts there, they are happy. It is truly the most pleasant cemetery one could imagine. There were over a thousand people who made their presence at this particular service, and all were amazed at the setting this cemetery provides and how it helps the families during a difficult time due to its presentability.

We just came from a burial of a loved one from Weslaco, TX at the RGV State Veterans' cemetery in Mission. It was a long drive but very organized as we followed the procession down Exp. 83. The long drive was well worth it, as it's a beautiful resting place for a beautiful young man who always had a smile on his beautiful young face. I'm sure he is smiling from heaven.

I visited my dad's grave this week, taking my daughter who had never been there before. The grounds are wonderfully kept, and it was a beautiful day with sunshine and fluttering flags.3197 I know my dad would be proud to know he is next to a Pearl Harbor survivor.
