Veterans Ridge at Circle Cemetery
Gravestones with pentacles issued by the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) mark the remains of deceased Pagan veterans at Circle Cemetery, a national Pagan cemetery maintained by Circle Sanctuary at its headquarters near Barneveld, Wisconsin. These pentacle-inscribed veteran memorial markers, which were among the first in the nation issued by the VA, were dedicated in a public ceremony on Memorial Day, 2007. The veteran gravestones are along Veterans Ridge, located in the original part of Circle Cemetery. Veterans Ridge has become a place of pilgrimage for honoring deceased veterans memorialized by pentacle gravestones and in remembrance of the Veteran Pentacle Quest victory. The cemetery is open for visitors at events Circle Sanctuary sponsors throughout the year.
