History

In 1989, the Romero Ranch Company donated land to the Department of Veterans Affairs for the creation of a National Cemetery. The first phase developed 105 acres (0.42 km2) of the land, and was completed in May 1992, giving enough space for the interment of over 20,000 remains.

There is a small military museum on site, which has exhibits of uniforms, medals, and other memorabilia.

Noteworthy monuments

  • The California Korean War Veterans Memorial, erected in 1998. It consists of 16 five-foot-tall (1.5 m) granite monoliths arranged in a circle. Engraved on each monolith is the name of the 2,495 veterans from California who died during the Korean War.
  • The 11th Airborne Memorial, a granite and bronze monument dedicated in 2002 in honor of all Airborne forces.
