Military Funeral Services
HONORING THOSE WHO HAVE SERVED OUR COUNTRY
United States military veterans have earned the right to be buried or interred at the national cemetery of their choosing at no cost to their families. Any veteran who has served two years active duty with an honorable discharge is qualified to receive this benefit. It is our pleasure to coordinate these services at no additional charge. All we need is a copy of the veteran's DD-214 (military discharge document), and we can work with you to plan the service that fits your family's needs.
