Receiving Military Funeral Honors When requested, Funeral Honors can be given at any cemetery – private or government operated. Most funeral directors make those arrangements with the DOD on behalf of family members. Under the new law, at a family’s request, every eligible veteran will receive Military Funeral Honors, to include the presence of a Military Funeral Honors Detail, which will oversee folding and presenting the U.S. flag and playing Taps, either by a high-quality recording or by a bugler. The law defines a Military Funeral Honors Detail as consisting of two or more uniformed military persons, with at least one being a member of the veteran’s branch of military service.

Presidential Certificate Free Pre-Need Burial Space Daytona Memorial Park, Edgewater–New Smyrna Cemetery and DeLand Memorial Gardens offer a free pre-need burial space to all honorably-discharged veterans with proper documentation in our Veterans Gardens. Our Veterans Gardens provide a final resting place and lasting memorial that commemorates a veteran’s service to our nation. Veterans may choose to have their name engraved among their peers on our stately Veterans Memorial.

Military Funeral Honors While Military Funeral Honors are a longstanding tradition, it wasn’t until 1999 that the rights of veterans and the responsibilities of the Federal Government were written into law. That law, which took effect January 1, 2000, was the National Defense Act of 2000 (Public Law 106-65). The Department of Defense (DOD) provides Military Funeral Honors at the burials of veterans.

A Presidential Memorial Certificate is an engraved paper certificate, signed by the President of the United States, to honor the memory of honorably-discharged deceased veterans. This program was initiated in March 1962 by President John F. Kennedy and has been continued by all subsequent Presidents. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs administers the Presidential Memorial Certificate program through the National Cemetery Administration. Eligible recipients include the deceased veteran’s next of kin and loved ones. A copy of the deceased veteran’s military discharge document must be provided when requesting a Presidential Memorial Certificate. An eligible recipient or someone acting on their behalf may request a Presidential Memorial Certificate.

Headstone or Grave Marker Veterans eligible for burial in a national cemetery, buried on or after October 18, 1978, are entitled to a government-provided headstone. Requests for headstones should be made on VA Form 40-1330 and mailed to the Office of Memorial Programs (403A), Department of Veterans Affairs, Washington, DC 20420. For information regarding the status of an application, call this same office at (202) 275-1495.
