Veteran Options

It is our honor to serve military veterans and their families who have spent their lives in service to our country.

The family of an honorably discharged veteran may be entitled to a number of benefits. Our funeral planners can assist you in acquiring, completing and submitting many of the required forms and documents necessary to obtain your burial benefits.

Veterans Benefits 

In recognition of their service and dedication to our country, burial and cemetery benefits are available for each eligible veteran.

These benefits include a military funeral honors ceremony at a funeral or memorial service, a burial flag, burial at a national veteran's cemetery or a monetary benefit towards burial at a private cemetery, and a veteran's cemetery marker.

Our staff will work with the Veterans Administration to assist you in obtaining these benefits.

Military Honors

Every eligible veteran is entitled to a military funeral honors ceremony at their funeral or memorial service. The ceremony serves as a final tribute and thank-you from a grateful nation for the veteran’s service.

The military funeral honors ceremony is conducted by two or more uniformed military persons, with at least one member of the veteran’s branch of service. The service includes folding and presenting the United States burial flag to a surviving family member and the playing of Taps.

Our funeral directors will assist you with arranging this special ceremony through a local veterans’ organization. Please click the links below for more information.

Cemetery Markers and Monuments

The Department of Veterans Affairs provides a government headstone or marker for any eligible veteran at no cost.

Flat bronze, marble and granite markers are available, along with granite or marble upright monuments and bronze plaques to mark the inurnment of cremated remains. The style of marker selected must meet with the approval of the cemetery in which it is placed. Our staff will assist the family with ordering the marker and placing it in the cemetery of their choice.

Burial Flags

All honorably discharged veterans are eligible for a United States burial flag provided at no cost by the Veterans Administration for their funeral or cremation services.

The flag will drape the casket or accompany the cremation urn. It is generally given to the next of kin at the conclusion of the funeral service.

Our funeral directors will obtain the flag for the family.
