The Committee to reopen and expand Camp Nelson National Cemetery, a nonprofit corporation, was formed, Sept. 19, 1974. This action was necessary as a result of a Presidential order closing certain national cemeteries in June 1967. On Memorial Day, May 26, 1975, the committee donated 10 acres to the United States Government for the purpose of expanding Camp Nelson National Cemetery. On that day the facility was reopened by the Veterans Administration. The Committee gratefully acknowledges the assistance from the following:
Governor Wendell Ford, Governor Julian Carroll, Congressman John B. Breckinridge and V.A. Administrator Richard L. Roudebush.

The following composed the committee:
