The Benefits of Military and Veteran Services

There are a number of benefits that come from planning a military service—and the foremost one is simply being able to honor, in some small fashion, those who have given so much for our nation. A military burial service is not just an important way to pay respects to our service veterans, but also their families.

Other Benefits Include:

A United States flag is provided at no cost to drape over the casket or to accompany the urn; it is provided to the next-of-kin following the service.

  • Headstones, markers, or medallions can be obtained at no cost from the Department of Veterans Affairs. 
  • Families may receive the Presidential Memorial Certificate, which is signed by the current president.
  • Military funerals can take place in private cemeteries or in veteran cemeteries.
  • Eligibility for Military Funerals.

The Funeral Honors Ceremony

The basic Military Funeral Honors (MFH) ceremony consists of the folding and presentation of the United States flag to the veterans' family and the playing of Taps. The ceremony is performed by a funeral honors detail consisting of at least two members of the Armed Forces.

At least one of the funeral honors detail will be from the Armed Force in which the deceased veteran served.  Taps may be played by a bugler or, if a bugler is not available, by using a quality recorded version. 

Frequent Questions

How do I establish veteran eligibility?

The preferred method is the DD Form 214, Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty.  If the DD Form 214 is not available, any discharge document showing other than dishonorable service can be used.  The DD Form 214 may be obtained by filling out a Standard Form 180 and sending it to:

National Personnel Records Center(NPRC)
9700 Page Blvd.
St. Louis, MO 63132

The Standard Form 180 may be obtained from the National Records Center or via the following web site: http://www.archives.gov/research/order/standard-form-180.pdf

Our staff here is more than happy to help you obtain these documents. Talk to your funeral director about how this process works. Allow us to ease this paperwork burden for you.
