We truly believe that the men and women who answered our nation’s call embody the ideals Americans hold so dear. Because they have proven their devotion to their fellow citizens and to a grateful nation, we all owe them the same respect and devotion in return.
We are Proud to Honor Those Who Served
Without a doubt, our professional staff feels pride when we are able to care for a veteran and their family. It is our way of expressing gratitude for their service to the country.
With submission of a DD-214 discharge document, VCS can provide a veteran's family with a United States flag and transport of the urn to the National Cemetery of your choice at no additional cost. We can also help with coordination of burial at a National Cemetery and contact information to apply for military honors for the veteran.
If you'd like more information on National Cemeteries - please visit their website at https://www.cem.va.gov/ Their website can provide further information on burial benefits, headstones, burials allowances and more.
Who is Eligible?
In short, the veteran must have been honorably discharged, their spouses and dependents. A more detailed list of those service men and women who may apply for, and receive veterans' burial benefits, with full military honors if they choose would include:
- Military members on active duty or in the Selected Reserve
- Former military members who served on active duty and departed under conditions other than dishonorable
- Former military members who completed at least one term of enlistment or period of initial obligated service in the Selected Reserve and departed under conditions other than dishonorable
- Former military members discharged from the Selected Reserve due to a disability incurred or aggravated in the line of duty.
