The state is moving ahead on development of a military veterans cemetery in Fairbanks.  The interior is home to more than 10 thousand veterans, most of who live in Fairbanks, but the closest military cemeteries are in Anchorage and Sitka. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, steps are being taken to change that.
