Military Graveside Services
The rendering of Military Graveside Services is a way to show the Nation’s deep gratitude to those who, in times of war and peace, have faithfully defended our country. This ceremonial paying of respect is the final demonstration a grateful Nation can provide to a veteran's family. Locally, volunteers from the American Legion and Veteran's of Foreign Wars provide these services. Active duty service members may be available upon request.
A United States flag is provided, at no charge, as a keepsake. Generally, the flag accompanies the casket or urn and is presented to the next-of-kin after the service.
Headstone, Marker, or Medallion
The Department of Veterans Affairs furnishes upon request, at no charge, a headstone or marker. (Upright or Flat Granite Headstone, Small or Large Bronze Marker, Small, Medium, or Large Bronze Medallion.) The family is responsible for installation in a private cemetery. The Veteran's County of residence may provide a monetary death benefit to offset those costs.
Presidential and/or Governor Memorial Certificate
Families can also receive a Presidential and/or Governor Memorial Certificate to honor the memory of an honorably discharged deceased Veteran. Pulaski County, IN residents will also receive a certificate from the local Veteran's Service Officer.
Burial in a State and/or National Cemetery

Any veteran who is honorably discharged is eligible for benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs. To prove eligibility, the veteran must provide the funeral home with a copy of their discharge or DD214 form. If you cannot locate your discharge, we can assist you with a military archives records search. It is our honor to serve veterans and their families in their time of need.
