Government-Furnished Headstones, Markers, and Medallions; Unmarked Graves

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) amends its regulations regarding the provision of Government-furnished headstones, markers, and medallions to eligible individuals. These revisions clarify eligibility for headstones, markers, or medallions, establish replacement criteria for such headstones, markers, and medallions consistent with VA policy, define the term “unmarked grave'' consistent with VA policy, and generally reorganize and simplify current regulatory language for ease of understanding.
