Veterans & Family Memorial Care
Veterans & Family Memorial Care
All veterans except those with dishonorable discharges may be buried in a national cemetery regardless of whether they served in war or peace. Also eligible are members of reserve forces who died on active duty, surviving spouses who do not remarry and unmarried dependent children.
The VA prepares the gravesite, carries out the burial, finishes a headstone or marker, a flag and provides perpetual care. Most VA national cemeteries accommodate cremation inurment in addition to traditional casket burial. The department does not provide funeral arrangements, transportation, or military Honor's which are arranged through your local VFMC Certified Provider.
The government does an excellent job providing veterans with burial benefits if you use a national cemetery, however there are very limited benefits for the funeral or cremation service. In addition to the free burial benefits by the VA, all Certified VFMC Providers give a 10% Discount off pre-arrangement services and merchandise for veterans, their spouses and dependent children along Whit a free glass and wood Flag Case to the surviving spouse of a deceased veteran. VFMC Certified Providers are selected for having deep roots in their community and upholding the highest standards of business, ethics, and integrity.

Family Owned vs. Corporate
Why choose a family-owned funeral home? Family-owned
funeral homes are locally owned and operated,
independent funeral homes. Many families have been in
funeral service for generations. They have a personal
relationship with the community and are actively
involved in the communities they serve. They strive to
offer the highest quality of service and merchandise
to their families. They are sensitive to the needs of
the community in which they live and serve. With
family-owned funeral homes, everything they do
reflects their on-going commitment to provide
affordable, quality services to the community.
Customer trust is built slowly over time. Family-owned
funeral homes are usually staffed by family members,
members of the community, and graduates from college.
Conglomerates (corporations) buy funeral homes from
all over the country. When purchased by a
conglomerate, some families continue to run and
maintain the funeral home. From outward appearances,
you cannot tell whether a funeral home is family or
corporate owned. All exclusive, certified VFMC
Providers are family owned and operated affording each
family peace of mind in knowing that their loved one
is being cared for with respect and dignity.
