Veteran Services

We're proud to do our part in honoring our country's veterans. Our duty is to provide you and your family with professional and dignified assistance during your time of need, and we promise to support you in honoring your loved one for their dedication and selfless service.

 


 

Military Honors

We partner with the Licking County Veterans Alliance to provide military honors and graveside services for our Licking County veterans. Eligible veterans receive the presentation of the American flag to the next of kin and the playing of Taps by a bugler or recording.



Veteran Benefits

In addition to honoring your veteran during the service, our staff can assist with contacting the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for:

  • Headstones: The VA provides headstones and markers for the graves of veterans and for eligible dependents of veterans buried in national, state, or military cemeteries.
  • A Presidential Memorial Certificate: This certificate shows the nation's recognition of the veteran's service. It includes the veteran's name and the signature of the President.
  • There are additional benefits available to our veterans. Please don’t hesitate to contact our staff if you have questions.



Eligibility

Military funeral honors are free and mandated by law for eligible veterans. Eligibility is verified by the veteran’s DD-214, or discharge papers. Eligible members are:

  • Military members on active duty or in the Selected Reserve.
  • Former military members discharged from the Selected Reserve due to a disability incurred or aggravated in the line of duty.
  • Former military members who served on active duty and departed with honorable conditions.
  • Former military members who completed at least one term of enlistment or period of initial obligated service in the Selected Reserve and departed under honorable conditions.
