When a family member passes away and the family needs help with funeral arrangements, here are some suggestions:
- Most funeral directors have access to, and programs for, passing Veterans. Please let them know your family member was a Veteran.
- It is recommended that you contact a Veterans Service Officer (VSO) to find out what benefits you may or may not have available to you or the family of the Veteran.
- If your family member was an active member of the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), American Veterans (AMVETS), or the Disabled American Veterans (DAV), they might be able to help with some of the arrangements for a military funeral.
