I received this from one of my genealogy resources and thought other on this
list might be interested. I have not personally checked it out.

In the Baltimore Sun newspaper, last week, there was an article
regarding the following website (I haven't had a chance to get into it
to do any searching):
(A short version of what the article said): This is a website post by
the Dept of Veteran Affairs. They have put on the www. 3.2 million
records for veterans buried at 120 national cemeteries since the Civil
War. It is suppose to include the VA's gravesite navigator, which
includes names, DOB, DOD, military service dates, service branch and
rank, if known, cemetery info, and grave location in the cemetery.
The VA will withhold some info, such as next of kin, for privacy
They will be updating on a continuing basis.
