The cremation process for a veteran can be confusing. You may have many questions. Here are a few of the most common:

  • – What benefits does the VA provide for veterans’ cremations?
  • – How do you arrange a veteran’s honors, such as the flag?
  • – How do you arrange the Presidential Memorial Certificate?
  • – What are the logistics for interment in a National Cemetery?

At Smart Cremation, we have extensive experience with veterans. We help families navigate the entire burial process. Our goal is to make the cremation as simple and seamless as possible. Your loved one may be eligible for several veteran benefits. These can help to reduce final arrangement costs.
