Tuesday marked a milestone for Kentucky veterans cemeteries. The burial of WW II Navy veteran Daniel E. Dowdle at the Kentucky Veterans Cemetery Central in Radcliff marked 16 thousand interments at Kentucky Veteran cemeteries across the commonwealth. The very first interment took pace in March of 2004 in Hopkinsville. Many Kentucky state officials say the cemeteries are a point of pride for the commonwealth, showing the state’s care they have for veterans of all ages and any war. The Kentucky Veterans Cemetery Central in Radcliff first opened in 2007.
