Burial at a national cemetery is available for veterans and their spouses (dependent/disabled children may also be entitled) at no cemetery cost to the family. Our funeral home will make all the arrangements necessary to arrange the availability of the cemetery. The national cemetery will provide a grave space, grave liner, and a headstone with inscription for both the veteran and their spouse.
Cremation and the National Cemetery
For those who desire cremation, our national cemeteries have three choices available to veterans and their spouses (dependent/disabled children may also be entitled). Families can choose to bury the cremated remains in a traditional grave or place them in a niche within an above ground columbarium. Another choice available is to place the cremated remains in Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, DC. Burial in Arlington National Cemetery is reserved for highly decorated veterans, but any honorably discharged veteran and their spouse can have their cremated remains placed in the cemetery. Our staff can assist you in arranging any of these choices.

WWII Registry of Remembrance
The memory of America's World War II generation is preserved within the physical memorial and through the World War II Registry, a listing of Americans who contributed to the war effort in uniform and on the home front. Names in the Registry are forever linked to the memorial's bronze and granite representations of their sacrifice and achievement.
