Military History in Our National Parks

Sunset at Fort Pickens

The National Park Service preserves and commemorates military history at more than 156 park units including 25 national battlefields and parks and 14 national cemeteries.

More than one-third of all units encompass aspects of our military history and need $6.2 billion in infrastructure repair. They observe and interpret the battles that shaped our nation and honor the veterans who have protected our country. This includes the World War II memorial in Washington, DC, which needs $548,000 in deferred maintenance repairs.

These sites need to be protected to ensure the sacrifices our veterans made will never be forgotten.
