Our Veteran Tribute begins with your first call to us. Regardless of where
the transfer takes place, or at what time of day, we will always ask if the
decedent was a Veteran and take the appropriate actions to honor and
respect them and their specific branch of service.
First, we drape them with our Old Glory cover to illustrate our respect and
identify the side of the car with a Veteran military ribbon. This is our
procedure 24-hours-a-day, regardless of where the transfer takes place.
Then, we provide a United States flag and a branch of service emblem to be
displayed during ceremonies.
Custom Military Tribute Panels can be
displayed in the caps of most caskets,
providing a personal way to highlight the
military service of a Veteran.
We will make arrangements to secure a
United States Burial flag that will drape
the casket or be with the urn for
presentation to the family of the
Unless the Veteran's death was during
active duty, the Pallbearers are typically
dressed in civilian attire. Therefore, we
identify the Pallbearers by providing them
each with a United States flag lapel pin as
our gift to them in recognition of their
service as a Pallbearer for a Veteran.
Finally, we will take care of completing and filing all the necessary paperwork
required when applying for Veterans burial benefits. These benefits are
provided at no cost to the family members to recognize the sacrifice and
contributions of our nation's Veterans. Military Benefits.pdf
Next, prior to the arrival of the funeral procession, we visit the cemetery of
the family's choice to prepare the site for the arrival of the Veteran. At the
cemetery, we install full-sized flags to line the pathway to the site and show
respect for the Veteran's service to our country.
The rendering of Military Funeral Honors is
a way to show deep gratitude to those
who, in times of war and peace, have
faithfully defended our country. We will be
honored to make arrangements for this
final demonstration a grateful nation and
community can provide to a Veteran and
their family. Military Honors may be
provided by the Department of Defense or
by the local District Twelve Veterans of
Foreign Wars Honor Guard.
Arrangements can also be made to include a
bugler, if requested.
In recognition and commemoration of their
service to our country, we request a
certificate that bears the signature of the
President of the United States, for every
surviving spouse and child of the Veteran.
This certificate is a treasured family
keepsake in honor of a Veteran.
Additionally, we offer several memorial keepsakes as a part of our signature
services to Veterans and their families.
