Directions to Cemetery
Navigation systems do an adequate job finding the cemetery. When you arrive, please follow the people and signs to the site of the ceremony itself.
Parking at Governor John Sevier Veterans State Cemetery is a challenge as this cemetery is large and not set up to accommodate the crowd we have at WAA event.
Police will be at the entrance to assist with traffic flow.
We ask that you save the cemetery parking for the elderly or handicap. We have additional parking at the KUB on John Sevier Highway with a warm shuttle bus ready to take you to the cemetery and return you to your car afterwards. PLEASE help us with parking issues, PARK AND RIDE THE WARM SHUTTLE BUS.
