Fort Custer National Cemetery

 

Augusta, Michigan

 

Named after General George Armstrong Custer, a native of the state of Michigan, the Fort was established in 1917, though the cemetery had its first interment in September 1943. During WWII the Fort was expanded to over 14,000 acres for additional training base and other military uses. Congress created Fort Custer National Cemetery in September 1981 with approximately 2,600 grave sites at the time. Following an expansion in 1998, the Cemetery will provide a final resting place for 10,000 veterans.
