Veterans Services

We offer military funeral honors to all families who are arranging services for a deceased veteran. These military honors are accorded by local VFW or Veterans Organizations, and can take place at the funeral home or at the cemetery. They usually include the folding and presentation of the American flag, the playing of ‘Taps’, and a 21-gun salute.

The funeral home also files for any federal or local financial benefit that the veteran may be entitled to. Your funeral director will assist and guide you through this process at the arrangement conference. If you are arranging services for a veteran, it is helpful if you can bring discharge papers (DD-214) to the funeral home for the arrangement conference. (Copies will be made and the originals returned). Currently, veterans are entitled to free copies of certified death certificates. Your funeral director will have more information on helping you obtain this benefit.
