Saving Graves is currently under construction at this URL. The website here was online in early 2008, but again went offline sometime in late May or June 2008. The website at http://www.savinggraves.org is still on line, however, it appears that no one is maintaining the site.

Department of Veteran Affairs - Headstone and Markers Program - Headstones and markers are provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), free of charge, to mark the unmarked graves of eligible veterans buried in any cemetery (national, state or private). Headstones and markers that are deteriorated, illegible, stolen, vandalized, incorrectly inscribed, or are of poor material and workmanship are replaced at government expense.

There are special forms you need to complete to request markers for eligible veterans. Links to these forms are found on the above VA page. You will also find forms here to apply for assistance in meeting the funeral and burial costs of a deceased veteran, for eligilbilty for burial in a national cemetery, to request information on requirements to permit a burial in a national cemetery, to request a burial flag and more.
