Military Funerals & Veteran Services
Those who honor our country through the selfless sacrifice of military service deserve, themselves, to be honored. At Bradshaw-Carter, we believe in paying proper respects to military service members and veterans both as they live and as they pass on from this world. Whether the desire is for a full military service or simply a small family funeral, we are committed to offering burial and memorial services that honor, respect, and provide true meaning to those gathered in mourning.
The Benefits of Military and Veteran Services
There are a number of benefits that come from planning a military service—and the foremost one is simply being able to honor, in some small fashion, those who have given so much for our nation. A military burial service is not just an important way to pay respects to our service veterans, but also their families.
Other benefits include:
- A United States flag is provided at no cost to drape over the casket or to accompany the urn; it is provided to the next-of-kin following the service.
- Headstones, markers, or medallions can be obtained at no cost from the Department of Veterans Affairs.
- Families may receive the Presidential Memorial Certificate, which is signed by the current president.
- Military funerals can take place in private cemeteries or in veteran cemeteries.
Eligibility for Military Funerals
For this unique honor, veterans from all military branches qualify—regardless of rank, and regardless of whether they served in active duty, Reserve duty, or National Guard duty. For more information, we invite you to contact Bradshaw-Carter today.
