  • You will need documentation to verify military service. You will need to provide Form DD214 and/or an equivalent before any Veterans services can be provided.
  • Military Funeral Honors ceremonies must be scheduled in advance but cannot be scheduled before a death has occurred.  Our Allen Brothers staff will coordinate all arrangements for our families.

  • Veteran's caskets and/or urns are NOT free, unless death occurs while on active duty.
  • If you choose to NOT be buried in a VA national cemetery, some monetary burial benefits are generally available but substantially limited, if the veteran meets all the requirements.
