Many veterans are choosing to be buried in a national cemetery. These cemeteries are beautifully maintained and are a peaceful and quiet retreat to honor our veterans. Below are some of the benefits available for those who wish to be buried in a national cemetery. In a national cemetery, a veterans spouse, minor children, and in some circumstances, unmarried adult children are eligible for free burial without a flag or military honors. 

  • Free burial space.
  • Free burial vault.
  • Free opening and closing of grave.
  • Free memorial headstone.
  • Free U.S. Flag
  • Free Presidential memorial certificate. We can help you apply for one.
  • Military Honors.
Military honors for veterans and retired service members consists of folding of the burial flag and the playing of taps and is customarily proved by the branch of service the service member was discharged from. If a rifle volley is requested, the funeral home will contact the Midland Area Veterans to schedule. Please note that the Midland Area Veterans are a volunteer based service, their availability is first come first serve, they do not perform services past 2 pm, and they will not perform honors in cemeteries during the winter. If your family wants a rifle volley, we will not publish service information until the Midland Area Veterans are confirmed.

If your loved one passed away while on active duty, please give our funeral home a call and we can coordinate details. We have done many dignified arrivals for service members and are trained in coordinating the details for these types of services.
