Honoring The Lives of Those Who Serve
We are proud to be able to offer our services for your
loved ones who have served our country. A Veterans Service is specifically designed to honor and pay respect to those who have put their country first; it is our honor to help you acknowledge the debt and gratitude we feel for our servicemen and women.
Who is eligible?
A Veteran is anyone who has been on active duty, is a retired service member, a member of the National Guard or the reserve, and who has not been dishonorably discharged.
Certain family members of the Veteran, such as his or her spouse and dependent hildren, are also entitled to free grave space, a cemetery marker, or burial vault space at any National Cemetery, alongside the Veteran. National Cemeteries are owned by the American people and are for the exclusive use of Veterans.
A Veterans Administration Burial Allowance is a flatrate monetary benefit for eligible Veterans. The amount of allowance is dependent upon such factors as:
- Whether the Veteran’s death was service-related
- Non-service-related death
- When the death occurred
To find out if you are eligible for Burial Benefit, you will need to complete VA Form 21P-530 Application for Burial Benefit.
The VA can provide headstones, markers, and
medallions to any unmarked grave of an eligible Veteran in any cemetery, anywhere in the world, regardless of the date of the death.
If a National Cemetery, state Veterans’ Cemetery, or Military Post/Base Cemetery is chosen, then a headstone or marker will be organized by the cemetery officials, based on inscription information provided by the Veteran’s next of kin or authorized representative.
