Veterans Honor Services
line

Honorably Discharged Veterans with less than 20 years
Military honors are available to all veterans regardless of rank or location of burial. If you are retired military with 20 years or more of service, we will call and request an active duty honor guard from your branch of service. The ceremony will consist of a Chaplain request, flag folding and presentation to next of kin, rifle salute and the playing of TAPS. The military does not accept payment or gratuities for these services under any circumstance.

Military Honors Requests
Typically these are retired veterans with incredible service histories. The ceremony will consist of a Chaplain request, flag folding, presentation and the playing of TAPS. Rifle Salute can be requested from veteran groups. Payment is not required but these groups accept donations.

Duplicate Medals
If you have the DD214 but have lost or misplaced medals such as a purple heart, a bronze star or a theatre ribbon, we can order it for you. Costs vary depending on each individual medal.
