The law mandates the rendering of Military Funeral Honors for an eligible veteran if requested by the family.

Taps will be played by a bugler, if available, or by electronic recording.

We strongly advise applicants to consult with the County Veterans Services Office prior to submitting all documents to the Department of Veterans Affairs. Assistance is available to all who are shut-in and require help in completing applications and acquiring supporting documents. This may help to reduce delays in receiving benefits or preventing the denial of benefits.
