Video: North Mississippi in the Running for New National Cemetery
WINONA, Miss. (WCBI) — Montgomery County could be the home of the state’s newest veterans cemetery. About 150 people including veterans and their families, county leaders and business owners expressed their support for the community during a meeting this week with the state Veterans Affairs Board. Backers say the county’s location along I-55 between Jackson and Memphis make it a logical location.
The state board is looking at locations on Legion Lake Road and along Highway 82 in Kilmichael as well as several other locations around the state.
