About Washington State Veterans Cemetery
The State Veterans Cemetery is located 3 miles west of Fairchild Air Force Base. From the flag assembly area looking southward, Francher Butte and West Medical Lake are present. Looking northward from the Committal Shelter, military aircraft banking northward off the 90-foot flagpole with its 30-foot flag lowered to half-staff often form the backdrop to interment services, and provide a serene setting for the final resting place of our nation's heroes, our veterans, and their families.
The Public Information Center is located in the administration building. There is a gravesite locator kiosk, accessible 7 days a week located just inside the foyer along with cemetery pamphlets that answer many questions.
