Published: November 7, 2022

What are military funeral benefits?

Military funerals are often depicted in movies as a loud 21 gun salute and at a military only cemetery. While these do happen, more often military funerals are more personalized.

The general benefits that a veteran is entitled to include:

Burial at a national cemetery

Burial marker

Presidential Memorial Certificate

Folding and presenting the burial flag

Playing of taps

A military funeral honors ceremony includes:

Folding and presenting the United States burial flag

The playing of taps

Burial or memorialization is in a national cemetery, state Veterans' cemetery, or military post/base cemetery

A headstone or marker

A Presidential Memorial Certificate (PMC) is an engraved paper certificate, signed by the current President, to honor the memory of deceased Veterans who are eligible for burial in a national cemetery.
