ANGEL FIRE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez has dedicated a new $3.2 million veterans' cemetery in Angel Fire.

The dedication Friday makes it the third cemetery constructed under the Martinez administration for veterans who live in rural areas throughout the state.

The Angel Fire cemetery will serve veterans and their families in northern New Mexico who live too far from the state's two Veterans Affairs national cemeteries.

The Fort Stanton State Veterans Cemetery in southeast New Mexico opened last November.

Another state veteran's cemetery in Carlsbad is in the pre-construction phase.
