Southeast Louisiana Veterans Cemetery

The cemetery opened in June of 2014 and has quickly become the fastest growing state veteran cemetery in Louisiana. As initial burial sites are occupied, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ National Cemetery Administration provides grants to add additional burial space to meet the goal of keeping all burial options available.

When you visit the cemetery, you will see our Carillon Bell Tower which was donated by AMVETS when the cemetery first opened. The bell tower is located in Memorial Circle where we have a wall to honor the groups who donate their time and attention to our cemetery. There is also a brick walkway through a garden with names engraved through donations received by Hero’s Farewell. In
addition, we have a very peaceful fountain located near the committal shelter donated by the Knights of Columbus. We are very blessed to have some of the best veteran organizations to partner with us to make this cemetery an honorable final resting place for our local heroes.
