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.

The Funeral Honors rendered to you or your veteran will be determined by the status of the veteran.  The type of Funeral Honors may be Full Military Honors, 7 Person Detail or a Standard Honors Team Detail.

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. Military Funeral Honor Teams may act as Pall Bearers if requested by the veteran/family.
