veteranflagOur professional staff will arrange for military honors at the cemetery or church of your choice. This service is at no charge to the veteran, or their family and is to provide a lasting memorial to honor the veteran with a final salute, including the playing of taps and presentation of the U.S. Flag.

In Northeast Ohio we have the distinct privilege of having a National Cemetery located within driving distance. The Honorably Discharged Veterans may be eligible to receive a gravesite, opening and closing of the grave, perpetual care, a Government headstone or marker, a burial flag, and a Presidential Memorial Certificate, at no cost to the family

Cremated remains are buried or inurned in national cemeteries in the same manner and with the same honors as casketed remains.

All men & women who serve in the United States Armed Forces and are discharged for reasons other than dishonorable, are entitled to certain benefits at death, at no cost to the family.

  • Burial in a National Cemetery: Includes gravesite, Opening & Closing, Perpetual Care, Government Headstone or Marker, Burial Flag, and a Presidential Memorial Certificate.

In addition some benefits are available for the veteran's spouse or dependent children:

  • Burial with the veteran, name and dates inscribed on veteran's headstone, and perpetual care

Some veterans may be entitled to a Burial Allowance which is a partial reimbursement of certain final expenses. Since this does not apply to all veterans, we encourage you to contact your local county Veterans Service office, or the VA directly to determine eligibility for Burial allowance.
