Senator Santorum Joins Secretary Nicholson in Bucks County to Announce Site of New Veterans Cemetery

U.S. Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA), Chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, today joined Secretary of Veterans Affairs R. James Nicholson, U.S. Senator Arlen Specter (R-PA), U.S. Representative Mike Fitzpatrick (R-PA-6th), and former U.S. Representative Jon Fox to announce the selected site of a new national cemetery in southeastern Pennsylvania.

Following a comprehensive review conducted by Department of Veterans Affairs National Cemetery Administration (VA), the Dolington Tract in Upper Makefield, Bucks County was selected as the site of a new national cemetery that will provide a cemetery for the veterans of Philadelphia.

"As the home to over 570,000 veterans and their families, southeastern Pennsylvanians deserve an appropriate resting place, which is why I have been a strong supporter of this initiative," said Senator Santorum. "Every veteran deserves the honor of being laid to rest in a national cemetery located close to the homes of their families and friends."

The new national cemetery is expected to be completed in 2007.
