Veteran Benefits

 

Military Honor Services
A number of people are not aware that military honors services are obtainable to all veterans despite of rank or location of burial. The military does not require payment for these services. We will do the best to arrange as many honors as possible. We consider the ordering of military honors a high order of business. At this time, we make all honor service request through The Florida National Cemetery. Military honors will be performed as long as honor team members are available. Because of limited and restricted personnel we sometimes use an honors team from groups such as a local VFW.

Burial Flag
An entitled deceased veteran's family member will be given a flag. The Veteran must have an honorable discharged. Flag is folded and presented to. We will acquire flag for presentation.
