National Cemetery Administration - Pre-Need Burial Eligibility Determination

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) implemented the pre-need burial eligibility determination program to assist anyone who would like to know if they are eligible for burial in a VA national cemetery. VA is promoting pre-need eligibility determinations to encourage Veterans and their eligible family members to plan in advance to use VA burial benefits that Veterans have earned through their military service. Planning in advance for a Veteran's or loved-one's final resting place can eliminate unnecessary delays and reduce stress on a family at a difficult time. Veteran families will have increased confidence that their loved ones are eligible for burial in a VA national cemetery at their time of need.


Application VA40-10007.pdf

Upon request VA will make eligibility determinations for burial in a VA national cemetery in advance of need. Eligible individuals are entitled to burial in any open VA national cemetery which includes opening/closing of the grave, a government-furnished grave liner, perpetual care of the gravesite, and a government-furnished upright headstone or flat marker or niche cover all at no cost to the family. Veterans are also eligible for a burial flag and Presidential Memorial Certificate.

For all the details, please visit U.S Department of Veterans Affairs website.


 

On a Final Note: Custodial and Grounds Maintenance

We all love the post on the coast and it shows. Sometimes, others may not be so kind from beach-goers, tourists or neighboring patrons. The entrance to the VFW is shared beach access but it's our front yard. As members and guests, if you see trash lying around on grounds, kindly pick it up. See a weed or two, pull them! Notice anything larger that requires attention, please bring it to our attention.

In other words: If it moves, salute it, if it doesn't paint it or pick it up, if it appears suspicious, report it!
