We were really satisfied with the way Chuck ** explained everything to us – the order of things happening after death. We’ve even called at a later time and he answered more questions. He also told us to call anytime if there are more questions. He got right back to us – quickly. Our friends have this same thing and they were very satisfied too. We’ve told friends and family and they are thinking about this same thing. It took us some time because of the nature of this reality and I’m sure our friends are experiencing the same. Thank you for the peace of mind.
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.
