We the signors of this petition respectfully request that you take the necessary steps to have a Resting place of Honor for our fallen Veterans in the Triangle Area. There are hundreds of acres of Federal land in Butner, NC that could be used for just this cause. Before another family struggles with the decision of where to lay their loved one to rest, let us consecrate land for our Veterans of NC. It would created jobs for veterans and help the Economy. I know you care and we support all of you. Please make this happen.

Signed,

The right to a burial in a Veteran's Cemetery is promised to all Veterans as a benefit. The Veteran's Cemetery in Raleigh, NC has been full for over 10 years and Veteran's are being buried in private cemeteries because the nearest State or Federal Cemetery is a 2 hour drive from the Triangle. There are acres and acres of Federal Land in Butner, NC that is available for just this cause. We are putting a Veterans Life Center in Butner and The Governor says he wants to create jobs, this would be a great job opportunity for Veteran's to be an important part of making this a reality. This will create jobs for the creation of and in the long term as caretaker's for this Cemetery. It will also help the economy of the people in the Triangle.
