3AW are kicking off proposals from the Victorian RSL to take over a chunk of Lake Burley Griffin foreshore to bury dead servicemen, PMs, and Governors-General.
RSL state president David McLachlan has told Neil Mitchell that A National Cemetery in Canberra has been proposed and is receiving support from around the country.
The cemetery would be similar to the United States’ Arlington Cemetery and would not try to compete with the Australian War Memorial.
The cemetery would be a final resting place for fallen soldiers, veterans, and Prime Ministers.
