Veterans Funerals & Cremation Services

Those who serve in the Military do a great honor to our country—and as such, they deserve to be honored themselves. One way to honor our veterans is to pay proper respects to them as they pass away, something that may look different from one family to the next. We are available to work with military families to develop memorial services that truly celebrate the life and service of deceased veterans—whether that means a full military service or an intimate family gathering.

The Benefits of Veteran Services

Military services are not just significant ways to honor our nation’s heroes—there are other benefits, as well:

  • A flag is provided, at no cost, to drape over the casket or to place alongside the urn. 
  • Headstone markers or medallions can be obtained from the Department of Veterans Affairs at no cost. 
  • Families may receive the Presidential Memorial Certificate, signed by the current Commander in Chief. 
  • Military services can be held in either private or military funerals.

Funeral Honors Ceremony

One common way to honor deceased veterans is with the Funeral Honors Ceremony, in which the flag is folded and presented to surviving family members while Taps is played. At least two Funeral Honors detail members—that is, Armed Forces members—are present for this. Different levels of Funeral Honors exist depending on the rank of the veteran. Our staff is available to help arrange these details on your loved one’s behalf.
