In recognition of their service, honorably discharged veterans are eligible for a number of benefits and honors.
Military funeral 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 veteran’s organization. Please click the links below for more information.
