Post Cemetery at Fort Missoula, Est. 1877
Missoula, Montana

The Post Cemetery at Fort Missoula encompasses an area just shy of one acre, split down the center by a service road, and surrounded by an iron fence. The Post Cemetery is an active Class IV National Military Cemetery with an estimated 400 grave sites, about half of which are filled. There are veterans from many American wars buried here, including the Civil War (1861-65), the Indian Wars (1866-92), the Spanish-American War (1898), World War I (1917-18), World War II (1941-45), the Korean War (1950-53), and the Vietnam War (1964-73). Today the cemetery remains as an active military cemetery. Those eligible for burial are military personnel, either retired or active duty, their spouses, and dependent children.
