The Veteran Program

"Together making a difference"

Planning a funeral in advance of death is called pre need funeral planning. Pre need funeral plans outline wishes for funeral services and interment. To avoid inflationary funeral costs, prepaid funeral plans are available.

Couple planning

Gravesites in VA national cemeteries cannot be reserved in advance thru the VA, however each day more and more veterans
are taking advantage of The Veteran Program BURIAL REGISTATION PROGRAM. Taking advantage of this opportunity
ensures that burial takes place in the closest VA National Cemetery and that final arrangement decisions are honored and
respected. The VA prepares the gravesite, carries out the burial, furnishes a headstone or marker, and a flag and provides
perpetual care.
