The Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery in Killeen will conduct an unaccompanied veteran burial for Joseph Matteson, a United States Marine Corps veteran, at 1 p.m. on Thursday. Matteson served in the Marine Corps from February 1974 to January 1978. Lake Shore Funeral Home in Waco has coordinated with the Marine Corps Honor Guard to ensure that he will receive military honors.

The Veterans Land Board, which runs the cemetery, works with the local community and fellow veterans support groups to ensure that no veteran is left behind after they pass away. The Central Texas community is encouraged to attend.

The Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery is located at 11463 State Highway 195 in Killeen. | 254-501-7554
