Some deceased veterans' parents to be accepted for national cemetery burials

Parents would also be eligible if the veteran "is interred in a VA national cemetery in a gravesite with available space, and has no spouse or child who is buried, or surviving spouse or child who, upon death, may be eligible for burial, in a national cemetery."

Family members must be parents "of veterans who die on or after Oct. 7, 2001," and must have passed away "on or after Oct. 13, 2010" to be eligible, according to the final rule.
