The Georgia Veterans Memorial Cemetery – Glennville is situated on the 42.6 acre site of the former Dyess Farm, just north of the Glennville, Georgia city limits. It is located along U.S. Highway 301, 25 miles west of the main post of Fort Stewart.

The initial 26-acre phase of the cemetery contains 1,400 pre-placed in-ground double vaults, for eligible veterans, their spouses, and eligible dependents; 766 conventional single-depth sites; 1,384 cremation interment sites, which include a columbarium and in-ground sites; and 429 spaces for memorial markers. These memorial markers are placed in the memory of those veterans whose remains are unavailable for burial.

GVMC–Glennville was dedicated on November 28, 2007, and will eventually be the final resting place for more than 21,000 veterans, their spouses, and eligible dependents. As of December 31, 2022, there were 2,211 veterans, spouses, and family members interred. 

A key feature of the cemetery is the co-location of the Glennville Veterans Service Office in the Administration Building and Visitor Center. This office provides assistance to veterans and their families with applications for veterans benefits and claims. The office provides service to veterans and their families in Bryan, Liberty, Long, Tattnall, and Wayne counties.

In 2022, GVMC–Glennville was able to host its annual Memorial Day ceremony and saw a large crowd gather to honor the sacrifice paid for by the
country's fallen members of the Armed Forces. U.S. flags were placed on each veteran's gravesite for the weekend by local Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts from Troop 929, along with other volunteers. The ceremony included a keynote address by LT COL Joseph Handke, a battalion commander from Fort Stewart's 3rd Infantry Division. Members of the 1st Battalion, 9th Field Artillery provided a Color Guard to open and close the event with a flag display, along with a rifle team providing a gun salute. Fort Stewart's 3rd Infantry Division's band provided a bugler to play "Taps" and a vocalist to provide a patriotic rendition of the National Anthem.

For Veterans Day, local Scouts and volunteers placed U.S. flags at
the grave sites of the veterans interred in the cemetery. They assist the cemetery staff yearly with this task and give honor to veterans buried here.

Cemetery staff members remain active in the local community by meeting frequently with civic groups, veterans organizations, and other various groups.

The cemetery is open to families, visitors, and the general public seven days each week from 8 a.m. to dusk.
