The family of an honorably discharged veteran may receive special Presidential Memorial Certificates in grateful recognition of their loved one’s service. This program began in 1962 by President John F. Kennedy and continues to this day.
The engraved certificate is signed by the current President to honor the service and memory of the veteran.
A certificate can be ordered for each family member if they would each like a keepsake. Our funeral directors will work with the Department of Veterans Affairs to obtain the certificates.
The Department of Veteran Affairs takes special care to pay lasting tribute to the memory of Veterans who served and sacrificed. Veterans in every branch of the armed forces and their families are entitled to burial and funeral benefits.
