The period following the death of a loved one is a difficult time. There are many decisions to be made, and navigating all the options available to honor the life of a veteran can be confusing. That’s where Accu-Care comes in. Planning a funeral or memorial service for a veteran who has chosen cremation comes with its own set of questions, our veteran’s specialists will help guide you through the process.
What cremation benefits do veterans receive?
The specific benefits awarded a veteran vary based on several factors including the years of service, and whether they died while on active duty or after the completion of their service. Accu-Care’s specialists explain these benefits with compassion and respect.
The cost of a cremation and an urn is not covered by veteran’s benefits, nor is transportation. For those families who wish to have a grave marker, that is provided, however, a spot for placement is only provided at a national military cemetery. Placement of a military provided grave marker at a private cemetery may come at an additional cost.
Where can military honors be performed?
Many families who choose cremation question where exactly they can have military honors bestowed upon their loved one. The good news is that the honors can be performed just about anywhere. Accu-Care can assist with all the arrangements to ensure your veteran receives all the honors their service deserves.
Honors include the playing of Taps and the presentation of the flag by a representative of the veteran’s branch of service. Accu-Care helps arrange these items and others such as scheduling and obtaining your Presidential Certificate.
