V.A. is particularly concerned with paying a lasting tribute to those Veterans who fought and sacrificed as well as their families. V.A. is meticulously maintaining more than 155 VA national cemeteries throughout the 44 U.S. states and Puerto Rico and is working on expanding access to allow Veterans and their eligible family members who live close to their homes. Currently, over 95 percent of Veterans can be buried within an accessible V.A. or state-owned veterans cemetery close to 75 miles from their homes.
Be aware that none of these benefits are offered to Veterans buried in the State, Territorial, or Tribal Veteran’s cemetery. Make sure to check with the cemetery to make sure that they are covered. Certain benefits are also available to Veterans who prefer burial in an unmarked cemetery.
Veterans who have an eligible discharge are eligible for V.A. burial allowances. Dependent children and spouses can also be eligible when the Veteran predeceases them.
Planning a Mausoleum
You choose a mausoleum because you believe that a headstone isn’t enough, you wish to create a space in which families can stay together, or you desire not to be laid to rest on the earth.
Designing, planning, and constructing a stone mausoleum will alleviate the responsibility of planning arrangements for your grandchildren and children. Like any major project, you need an experienced team you can trust to deliver top-quality work. For a mausoleum to be constructed, that work must stand up to the years. It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for a small mausoleum or a grand mausoleum that is private and private, or perhaps a mausoleum that houses cremains and urns The importance of quality and choosing the best companion remains the same.
