Military Honors can include:
In addition to coordinating honors related to the service itself, we can help you communicate with the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to arrange for:
This is a certificate expressing the nation's recognition of the veteran's service. The veteran's name is inscribed and the certificate bears the signature of the president. Certificates are issued in the name of honorably discharged, deceased veterans. Contact us for assistance in applying for a Presidential Memorial Certificate, and we would be happy to guide you through the process.
The VA provides headstones and markers for the graves of veterans anywhere in the world and for eligible dependents of veterans buried in national, state veteran or military cemeteries.
If an eligible veteran's remains are not available for burial, the VA will provide a plot and headstone or marker in a national cemetery for memorialization. If you wish to place the memorial in a cemetery other than a national cemetery, the VA will provide the headstone or marker but not the plot itself.
This includes the gravesite, opening and closing of the grave,a grave box, and perpetual care.
For information on eligibility and the different levels of potential reimbursement, please review their Guide to VA Burial Allowances.
To find out in advance if you can be buried in a VA national cemetery, you can submit an application. A pre-need determination of eligibility is what this is known as, and it can make the arranging of your funeral easier for your family ones in their time of need.
