Florida National Cemetery is the 2nd busiest National Cemetery in the United States. It is currently developing plans for a 55-acre expansion to continue to provide a place for Veteran's to call home. Florida National Cemetery is one of the few National Cemeteries without any significant monuments. We believe that the Veteran's who are laid to rest here deserve nothing but the best! We want to honor the military men and women from all branches at Freedom Memorial Plaza and throughout Florida National Cemetery. We are initiating
Freedom Memorial Plaza
The Plaza will be the centerpiece of monument development with further expansion being planned in the future. It will be located at the entrance to the cemetery and will honor and remember our Veteran's from all branches of the United States Military.
We plan to begin with the Defenders of Freedom Wall. It will be located on the rear of Columbarium 1 and will be the backdrop of Freedom Memorial Plaza.

We are also developing a Patron Program. This program provides a way for groups or individuals to make an annual tax free contribution each year to the cemetery.
We have a full-time Volunteer Program that staffs the Public Information Center, Monday thru Friday. If you have a desire to serve those who have served, we would love to welcome you to our group. There is always a need for volunteers at our special events, mainly Flags For Fallen Vets and Wreaths Across America. We always room for more volunteers to staff the PIC.
