Veteran Benefits

As an honorably discharged veteran, you are entitled to burial benefits. Along with a gravesite, Veteran’s may receive a burial flag, opening and closing of the grave, a Government headstone or marker, and the utmost perpetual care.

Every eligible veteran is entitled to a military funeral service. This ceremony serves as a final tribute from a grateful nation for the veteran’s service. This service includes folding and presenting the United States burial flag to a surviving family member and the playing of Taps.

Burial benefits are also available for spouses and dependents, which includes burial with the veteran and perpetual care. Our professional staff is knowledgeable in veterans’ burial benefits, providing you and your family with respectful and distinguished service.

The funeral planners at Southern Cremations & Funerals will ensure that you acquire, complete, and submit the required documents necessary to obtain your burial benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs.
