    That's where the most dangerous battleground will happen when the zombies arise to exact revenge against politicians who sent them to their death in some foreign land.

    There are quite a few national cemeteries such as the one in the Black Hills run by the VA.. There are also quite a few state military cemeteries such as the two in Nevada. But as far as I know, there is only one military cemetery, the one at Arlington run by the Army.

      do you mean Arlington National Cemetery or another one?  The Department of Veterans Affairs' (VA) National Cemetery Administration maintains 141 national cemeteries in 40 states (and Puerto Rico) as well as 33 soldier's lots and monument sites

    You have to have been a member of the military to be buried in a military cemetery.  You don't have to have been a member of the military to be buried in a national cemetery, though that is often a way to become eligible to be buried there.  As an example, President William Howard Taft is buried at Arlington National Cemetery, but he was never a member of the national military.  Also buried at Arlington are non-military family members of military personnel.
