  • Thank you for your wonderful care, our experience , and the professionalism of your entire staff, during the setup and ceremony and interment of my mother Ingrid Haley on April 24th, 2019 with My stepfather Charles Haley. Every step of the way went smootly and with personalized care. Bless you all.
  • While in Dayton for the first time, I sought out and visited a relative's grave. As I expected, the cemetery is very well designed and cared for.
  • An immaculate National Cemetery holding 54,000 of our nation's heroes. It is one of a few having its own Honor Squad assuring that no veteran is interred without full military honors. A veteran from every American war including the Revolutionary War is here including five Medal of Honor recipients, 33 from the War of 1812, the largest number of Colored Troops of the Civil War anywhere and a number who have given their last full measure. While the National Cemetery Administration is the highest ranking federal agency, the Dayton National Cemetery is one of only 14 of 136 to have been awarded Shrine Status. It is Ohio's Arlington.
  • Very clean and orderly. Beautiful grounds.
  • I was very proud that the V.A. helped my family give my Dad a awsome funeral today .Thank you so very much ,Rita !
