Veteran’s Farewell Tribute: A Fitting Salute to Those Who Served
Did you know that all Honorably Discharged veterans are entitled to…
- 5’ x 9’ cotton flag
- Military Honors
- Flag folding
- Flag presentation
- Military grave marker
- And in some select cases, financial reimbursement for burial/cremation costs by the Veteran’s Administration
Military Honors can also include a 21 Gun Salute and Color Guard provided by a local veteran’s service organization.
Military honors can be scheduled for a graveside committal service, a service in a chapel or a church, a local event venue, even for a backyard BBQ Celebration of Life.
Our caring staff are experts at arranging and directing military honors for a Veteran’s Farewell Tribute™. We are honored to take care of every aspect of these special services, including procuring the flag, scheduling with the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, or Coast Guard honor guard, scheduling any veteran’s service organizations, ordering a free military grave marker, and applying for Veteran’s Burial/Cremation Benefits for veterans receiving disability from the Veteran’s Administration.
A Veteran’s Farewell Tribute™ can include any number of ways to tell a life story, including displays of memorabilia, a video slideshow, special music selections, custom printed memorial folders and guestbook, and small handheld flags to be given out.
Upon being granted an honorable discharge from military service for the United States of America, veterans are entitled to a grave space and burial in a National Cemetery. The nearest National Cemetery to many families we serve is Tahoma National Cemetery in Kent, Washington (about 130 miles south of Whatcom County). Frequently this distance poses a problem for the families we serve. Therefore, we are honored to offer the following services for veterans free of charge:
- Grave space at Greenacres Memorial Park
- Facilitation of free veteran’s memorial marker
- Acquisition of veteran’s burial flag for family
- Acquisition of presidential letter for survivors
- Reconciliation of all benefits and entitlements for surviving family members
