State Rep. Ken Borton and the Michigan House of Representatives today approved a plan to open a new cemetery for veterans in Northern Michigan.

The proposed state veterans cemetery in Crawford County would fill a critical need. Currently, two federal veterans cemeteries in Michigan are open for new interments, both located in the southern part of the state — one near Battle Creek and the other in Holly.

“After answering the call of duty and dedicating their lives to our country, Northern Michigan veterans deserve to have a fitting final resting place available for them,” said Borton, R-Gaylord. “Establishing a dedicated veterans cemetery in our region will help us honor the men and women from Up North who served in our armed forces.”

Senate Bill 971 now returns to the Senate for concurrence.
