I worked with a gentleman named Ed. He made a sad experience seamless. Other than the support of Family and Friends, Ed made me feel like he was going through this with us. I am soooo very appreciative I found Trident Society and that Ed was our associate. He kept me in the loop with everything that was going on and even helped me arrange to receive a flag for my Dad’s service at the National Cemetery. I can not say enough good things about Trident and Ed other than thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your patience and support. You are a fantastic person, thank you from my Family.
Veterans Cremation Benefits
What Every Veteran Should Know About Cremation Benefits
United States Veterans are entitled to be buried or have their ashes interred in any National Cemetery that has available space at no charge. Currently, the Veterans Administration operates 125 national cemeteries, of which 65 are open for new casketed interments and 21 are open to accept cremated remains only. Burial options are limited to those available at a specific cemetery but may include in-ground casket, or interment of cremated remains in a columbarium, in ground or in a scatter garden. The government runs these programs and benefits may change at any time.
