Talk:United States national cemetery

Is "United States" necessary?
Do other countries have "National Cemeteries"? If not, then this article should be called "National Cemetery" as that is the common name, and the term used by the National Cemetery Adminstration. If noting the country really is needed, then perhaps using "National Cemetery (United States)", as this is more typical for disambig purposes. — Eoghanacht talk 19:55, 29 March 2006 (UTC)
- They do in various forms and formats. But in addition to the WP:globalization imperative, note there are other US cemeteries overseas, such as the Cambridge American Cemetery and Memorial that this article might want to cross-reference Ephebi 12:25, 26 July 2007 (UTC)
Names on stones
Someone keeps taking out one of the photos. Please cite your authority about names before you take the photo out again. --evrik 20:12, 27 October 2006 (UTC)
I was a summer laborer at Rock Island National Cemetery and I was taught that it not allowed for news or other like places to show the names on the stones, mainly because the faimly would need to give permission for this reuse. Also if a stone is replaced due to damage, correction, or an addintional burrial in that plot the names must be obliterated.

No sorry, I no longer have my handbook. And it is possible that the rules have changed. I was just tring to be safe then sorry. I'll leave it up to your judgement. Beckje01 15:46, 30 October 2006 (UTC)
- This is the first I've heard that rule. If you find your handbook, let us know. --evrik 15:51, 30 October 2006 (UTC)
In need of serious updating
There have been several new cemeteries built over the last few years that have still not been put into the list. I've tagged the article for needing updating. --Fbifriday (talk) 04:18, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
