Every deceased person deserves respect and honor in their last goodbye, but those who protected our country and its people by going into dangerous wars deserve a special recognition after they’re gone.
Martin Funeral Home and Crematory believes in the importance of honoring our veterans, which is why we offer veteran burial services in Stuart.
The staff of Martin Funeral Home and Crematory takes great pride in assisting families in understanding what benefits are available through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and how to request them.
Family members need to provide us with a copy of the veteran’s DD Form 214, commonly known as discharge orders. This will allow us to establish to what they are eligible and take the steps to request it.
Every veteran is entitled to military funeral honors, which consists in an honor guard detail composed of minimum two members of the military forces. One of them must be part of the branch or service of the deceased veteran.
The honor detail will perform a ceremony that includes the folding and presentation of the American flag to the next of kin and the playing of taps.
