(ABC 6 NEWS) -- It's standing room only for a special ceremony in Fillmore County.
The county board is signing over 167 acres of county land to the state, to make space for a new veterans cemetery.
The land will become a final resting place for thousands of service members.
Organizers hope to break ground next month.
We'll have reaction from local veterans tonight on ABC 6 News.
