Veteran Services

Military Funeral Honors are a way to show families the nation’s deep gratitude to those who have faithfully defended this country and made this land the home of the free because of the brave. 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.

We work closely with families to make sure they understand what they are eligible for, or not eligible for, and how to request them. To establish eligibility, it is the responsibility of family members to provide us with a copy of the deceased´s DD Form 214, commonly known as discharge orders.
