For every Veteran we serve, a United States flag is provided, at no cost, to drape over the casket or urn. Only one flag is provided and is generally given to the next of kin.
Additionally, every veteran is entitled to a standard Government headstone or marker. Upon request, at no cost to the surviving family member, the VA will furnish the headstone and marker for the gravesite, as long as the Veteran was not dishonorably discharged.
There are many options available and we can help you navigate the possibilities. Keep in mind, the style must be consistent with existing monuments or markers at the burial site.
At Nalley-Pickle & Welch, we wish to honor those that have served our country. We are here to answer any questions you may have regarding Veterans benefits and help you along the way when planning a funeral for a Veteran.
