This Memorial Day weekend, families can pay tribute to those who have served our country by visiting the Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial in Northern Las Vegas. Not only will they be able to explore interactive backgrounds worthy of being photographed but they will also be able to take advantage of several benefits offered exclusively to veterans. Located at 1900 Veterans Memorial Drive in Boulder City, Nevada, this memorial is a great way to honor those who have served our country. The memorial is open to the public and there is no fee for admission.
At the Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial, visitors can explore eight fold-out containers full of backgrounds worthy of being photographed. These backgrounds feature themes from recent decades, ranging from the 1950s all the way into the future. This is a great way for families and friends to capture photos with interactive backgrounds and fun themes. The memorial also houses the Lumin Café and Kitchen, a contemporary culinary experience with fresh dishes and specialty cocktails.
Guests can relax on the garden-inspired patio while enjoying the dining options available throughout the day, including plates to share, hamburger options and refreshing milkshakes. In addition to providing a great place for visitors to explore and commemorate Memorial Day, the Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial also offers several benefits for veterans. For example, veterans must submit a full annual Nevada State Parks application for disabled veterans, along with the required fee and all required documentation (listed on the application). This allows veterans to receive state tuition during certain specific periods of time or during military campaigns.
Veterans and their spouses can also be buried side by side in national cemeteries. National veterans cemeteries now allow married veterans to have the right to be buried separately, meaning female veterans can now be buried next to their veteran husbands. The Las Vegas Veterans Treatment Court, the Southern Nevada State Veterans Home, the Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery, and veterans service organizations are also known as the habitual residence of family members of veterans. The North Nevada State Veterans Home has 96 beds and offers short- and long-term care and memory care.
Finally, visitors can search for burial sites for veterans and their family members in Virginia national cemeteries, state veterans cemeteries, and several other military and Department of the Interior cemeteries. They can also look for veterans buried in private cemeteries when the grave is marked with a government headstone. This Memorial Day weekend is an excellent opportunity for families and friends to honor those who have served our country by visiting the Southern Nevada Veterans Memorial in Northern Las Vegas. Not only will they be able to explore interactive backgrounds worthy of being photographed but they will also be able to take advantage of several benefits offered exclusively to veterans.
