ND Veterans Cemetery Receives National Award

Posted:

Many of us drive by the North Dakota Veterans Cemetery south of Mandan.

And the beauty of this resting place doesn't go unnoticed.

On August 21st, the North Dakota Veterans Cemetery received the "Excellence of Appearance Award."

This national award was presented by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs' National Cemetery Administration.

Cemeteries are critiqued on a number of requirements including overall general appearance of headstones, alignment, and turf conditions.

Director, Pam Helbling-Schafer says this recognition would not have been possible without the number of volunteers who work hard to make this a first-class facility.

"We have visitors daily, especially of course in the summer months and visitors from all over the areas even out of the country such as Germany. And the compliments and the comments that we receive from these visitors is amazing. They have nothing but high regard and high compliments of this cemetery," says Pam Helbling-Schafer, Director, ND Veterans Cemetery.

The NCA inspects state veterans cemeteries every three years.

Less than 10 percent of state veteran cemeteries receive this award.
