San Diego’s ‘Garden of Heroes’
San Diego, California, with its many military bases, ships and aircraft, is home to thousands of active-duty members of America’s Armed Forces. Thousands more area residents are veterans who served their country with distinction.
Among the facilities serving the military community is the new Miramar National Cemetery, located just west of the Marine Corps Air Station, Miramar. Since its dedication in November 2010, the 313-acre cemetery has provided a beautiful “Garden of Heroes” for San Diego veterans and their spouses.
Supporting the National Cemetery
The Miramar National Cemetery Support Foundation was instrumental in gaining federal approval for the new cemetery, finding available land, and encouraging the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to develop it.
Now the Support Foundation focuses on enhancing and beautifying the cemetery, and conducting patriotic ceremonies throughout the year. It also advises veterans’ organizations on memorial projects, and raises funds for installation and construction of those projects. In addition, the Foundation administers memorial trust funds provided for improvements to the cemetery.
