Proudly serving those who have served
We believe that the men and women who have served in the Armed Forces deserve special consideration. To pay tribute to our fallen heroes, New Crown Cemetery helps with veterans burial benefits to those eligible.
At New Crown, we can help apply for a VA memorial.
Available veteran benefits:
- Inscribed cemetery marker
- U.S. flag
- Gun salute
- Transportation costs (some or all of the cost)
Who is eligible?
Military members on active duty, Military retirees, members and former members of the Selected Reserve, eligible U.S. veterans of any war, other U.S. veterans who served at least one term of enlistment and separated under conditions other than dishonorable.
What are veterans honor services?
Military honors are available to all veterans regardless of rank or location of burial. If you are retired military with 20 years or more of service, an active duty honor guard can be requested from your branch of service. The ceremony can consist of a Chaplain to speak, flag folding and presentation to next of kin, rifle salute and the playing of TAPS.
Honorably Discharged Veterans with less than 20 years
Volunteer, local veterans groups can be requested for Military Honors requests. Typically these are retired veterans with incredible service histories. The ceremony can consist of a Chaplain to speak, flag folding, presentation and the playing of TAPS. Rifle Salute is not regulation but is often offered. Payment is not required but these groups accept donations.
Wood Flag Cases
The Military provides a wood flag case for any active duty deaths.
