Veterans and Family Memorial Care
Proudly serving those who have proudly served.
The Veterans Choice
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, furnishes the headstone or marker, a flag and provides perpetual care. Most VA national cemeteries accommodate cremation inurnment in addition to traditional casket burial. The department does not provide funeral arrangements, transportation, or military honors 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 with 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 communities and upholding the highest standards of business, ethics, and integrity.
