A veteran that has been honorably discharged is entitled to a flag, a presidential memorial certificate, a military grave marker and military service. This service is usually performed at the cemetery but can also be done at the end of a memorial service. It consists of a two-person detail from the branch of service in which the veteran served. They will play Taps and fold the flag which is presented to the family. A three-volley rifle salute can also be included based on the availability of the local veteran organization.
*Burial in a national cemetery.
A veteran honorably discharged is eligible for burial in a national cemetery with no charge to the family. This includes the gravesite, opening and closing of the grave and a grave vault.
A discharge paper (DD214) is required to be sent in for these services.
