Honoring Veterans

As the only veteran owned funeral home in Paragould, we're proud to do our part in honoring our country's veterans. For those whose sacrifice and patriotism define our great nation, we are grateful. Our duty is to provide you and your family with professional and dignified assistance during your time of need and to support you in honoring your loved one for their dedication and selfless service.

We would be honored to help you make arrangements for any combination of traditional military tributes. We also offer a 10% discount on all of our service charges to all veterans with a DD214.

Traditional Elements & Honors
Standard honor military funerals can include:

  • An American Flag draped on the casket or folded at the head of the casket
  • The American flag folded by military personnel and dedication of flag to next of kin
  • The playing of Taps by a lone bugler or an audio recording
  • A Presidential Memorial Certificate. This is a certificate expressing the nation's recognition of the veteran's service. The veteran's name is inscribed and the certificate bears the signature of the president. Certificates are issued in the name of honorably discharged, deceased veterans. 


Full honor military funerals include all standard honors in addition to the following:

  • Depending on their rank, general officers and flag officers receive a 16 gun salute


Other Veteran Benefits
In addition to coordinating honors related to the service itself, we can help you communicate with the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to arrange for:

    • Headstones or Markers. The VA provides headstones and markers for the graves of veterans anywhere in the world and for eligible dependents of veterans buried in national, state veteran or military cemeteries.


    • Memorial Plots. If an eligible veteran's remains are not available for burial, the VA will provide a plot and headstone or marker in a national cemetery for memorialization. If you wish to place the memorial in a cemetery other than a national cemetery, the VA will provide the headstone or marker but not the plot itself.


    • Burial in a VA National Cemetery. This includes the gravesite, opening and closing of the grave,a grave box, and perpetual care.


    • Reimbursement of Burial Expenses. For information on eligibility and the different levels of potential reimbursement, please review their Guide to VA Burial Allowances.
