Cimetière national à Memphis, dans le Tennessee

« Cimetière national des États-Unis » (United States National Cemetery) est une désignation pour 139 cimetières nationaux importants des États-Unis. Un cimetière national est généralement un cimetière militaire abritant les tombes de militaires américains, de vétérans et de leurs épouses mais pas exclusivement. Il existe également des cimetières d'État de vétérans.

Les premiers cimetières nationaux furent construits après la guerre de Sécession.

Le plus connu des cimetières nationaux est le cimetière national d'Arlington dans le comté d'Arlington (Virginie), dans la proche banlieue de Washington.

Certains cimetières nationaux, spécialement celui d'Arlington, abritent les tombes d'importants leaders civils ou d'autres personnalités nationales. Certains cimetières nationaux abritent des soldats confédérés.

L'administration des cimetières nationaux (National Cemetery Administration) dépend du Département des Anciens combattants des États-Unis (United States Department of Veterans Affairs), elle entretient 125 des 139 cimetières nationaux. Le département de l'Armée en entretient deux, celui d'Arlington et le United States Soldiers' and Airmen's Home National Cemetery. Le National Park Service (NPS) entretient 14 cimetières associés avec des sites ou des batailles historiques. En plus, l'American Battle Monuments Commission entretient 24 cimetières américains outre-mer (voir liste ci-dessous).
