The Biloxi National Cemetery, established in March 1934, as part of the VA Medical Center is located on the grounds of the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) and adjacent to the Keesler Field Air Force Base. The Biloxi Cemetery’s first burial, held on March 24, 1934, was Private Edgar A. Ross, 1st Regiment of the Tennessee Infantry.
The cemetery is home to a beautiful monument & several memorials. The Biloxi National Cemetery Monument is approximately 30 feet tall and 10 feet in diameter, and erected in May 1941 to commemorate all who have served their country. There are two square granite markers located around the main flagpole; one donated by the National Association of Atomic Veterans on November 9, 1990, in memory of veterans who participated in the U.S. nuclear weapons testing program, and the other by the US Navy Seabees on July 1, 2010, in memory of veterans who served as US Navy Seabees. There is also a memorial plaque with an original poem by First Lieutenant William S. Haynie, U.S. Marine Corps, titled "This Hollowed Place" donated in conjunction with American Legion Post 119 in Gulfport.
