We would be honored to help you make arrangements for any combination of traditional military tributes.


Traditional Elements & Honors


Standard honor military funerals can include:

  • A military chaplain for family members
  • Flag Presentation Service by the chaplain of the American Legion


Full honor military funerals include all standard honors in addition to the following:

  • Depending on their rank, a 21 gun salute
  • The US flag draped over the casket and given to the next of kin following the service
  • The playing of Taps by a lone bugler or an audio recording

 

Other Veteran Benefits

In addition to coordinating honors related to the service itself, we can help you communicate with the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to arrange for:

  • A Presidential Memorial Certificate. This is a certificate expressing the nation's recognition of the veteran's service. The veteran's name is inscribed and the certificate bears the signature of the president. Certificates are issued in the name of honorably discharged, deceased veterans. Contact us for assistance in applying for a Presidential Memorial Certificate, and we would be happy to guide you through the process.
