Burial Honors Program

Veterans are eligible to receive military burial honors for their funerals. While the Funeral Director should discuss options with eligible veterans and their families, Veterans Service Officers are located in each county through the County Director of Veterans Affairs Office or by calling Veterans Organizations that serve on the State Veterans’ Commission and they can also assist in planning and arranging burial honors through local Veterans Organizations.

DMVA offers a stipend program for Organizations that provide Burial Honors at the three active National Cemeteries located in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania: Indiantown Gap National Cemetery; National Cemetery of the Alleghenies; and Washington Crossing National Cemetery.  If your Veterans Organization is interested in providing Burial Honors at one of the three National Cemeteries please contact the Office of Veterans Affairs for further details regarding the Burial Honors Program.
