Honoring Those Who Served is our commitment to recognize the sacrifice and contributions of our nation’s veterans. The rendering of military funeral honors is one of the ways to show the nation’s deep gratitude to those who, in times of war and peace, have faithfully defended our country. The ceremonial playing of Taps, the folding of the American flag and presenting it to the next-of-kin are the final demonstrations that a grateful nation can provide to veterans’ families.
To request Military Funeral Honors for an eligible veteran, you must be a family member or a representative of the family of the deceased, and possess a copy of the service member's DD214 or official discharge papers. Please complete the Online Request for Military Funeral Honors form below. Then, email the service member's DD214 or official discharge papers to email@example.com.
