Geography[edit] The entrance to the cemetery is located at 950 South Sepulveda Boulevard (90049) at Constitution Avenue, near the intersection of Sepulveda Boulevard and Wilshire Boulevard. It is adjacent to Westwood, Los Angeles and UCLA along the east across Veteran Avenue, and the main Sawtelle Veterans Home campus across the San Diego Freeway (405) along the west. The cemetery was dedicated on May 22, 1889.[1] It is directly connected to the central Veterans Home facilities by Constitution Avenue's underpass below freeway.


Cemetery[edit] Interred on its 114 acres (46 ha) are war veterans, from the: Mexican–American War Civil War Spanish–American War World War I World War II Korean War Vietnam War Iraq War War in Afghanistan [1] An annual ceremony commemorating the birthday of Abraham Lincoln is held at the cemetery on or near February 12. The cemetery's annual Memorial Day program draws several thousand attendees each year. The chapel at the cemetery was renamed the Bob Hope Veterans Chapel on 29 May 2002, Bob Hope's 99th birthday, in "celebration of his lifelong service to our American Veterans."[2][3] Notable burials[edit] Medal of Honor recipients[edit] Fourteen Medal of Honor recipients are buried at the cemetery:[1] Landsman William F.

Future interments will be in urns of cremated ashes placed in columbarium walls built on the new land. By eliminating ground burials, the new acreage will permit about as many new interments as are in the existing 114 acres.[5]


Local Issues[edit] After the September 11 attacks a pedestrian gate on the Eastern side of the cemetery was closed "for security reasons." This ongoing closure has significantly affected the ability of eastbound pedestrians and cyclists to avoid a long block of very busy and "dangerous for cyclists" Wilshire Boulevard to commute to/access the UCLA campus and downtown Westwood Village.
