The Department of Veterans Affairs' (VA's) National Cemetery Administration (NCA) has launched an educational program to get students and the public involved in learning about and documenting the stories of those buried in the 135 national cemeteries across the country. Through this program, citizens of all ages can explore U.S. History, visit national cemeteries or experience them online, and get to know these historic places as engaging places for learning. The program was rolled out around Memorial Day at two pilot cemeteries, Beaufort National Cemetery in South Carolina and Riverside National Cemetery in California. The next major program rollout is scheduled for Memorial Day 2017. For more information, visit the VA Veterans Legacy Program webpage.
