The rendering of Military Funeral Honors is a way to show the Nation’s deep gratitude to those whom, in times of war and peace, have faithfully defended our country. This ceremonial paying of respect is the final demonstration a grateful Nation can provide to the veterans’ families. The Diehl Funeral Home & Cremation Center has always been honored to provide our expertise in arranging one of the most honorable services for a veteran. We will provide the service of filing any and all veteran’s forms for your family. They include, but not limited to:
- County Veterans Benefits
- Federal Burial Benefits
- Flag Application
- Government Monument Application
- Military Reimbursement Application
- Application for burial in a National Military Cemetery
- Presidential Memorial Certificate
When driving in the funeral procession to the place of burial, our funeral coach will be clearly marked with the American Flag and the military coat of arms emblem of the branch of service from which the veteran served. If the burial of your Veteran family member takes place in a national military cemetery, or your family cemetery, across the street, across the state, or across the country, the Diehl Funeral Home & Cremation Center can arrange and organize military honors for him or her. For local burials, the final tribute will be performed by the York County Veterans Honor Guard. In the case of a loved one being buried at a national military cemetery those honors will be performed by the veterans honor guard from the cemetery. Whether a private cemetery, or a National Military Cemetery, we will provide bugler, flag bearers, 21 gun salute and flag folding in honor of the time and service which your loved one has so graciously given.
I appreciate the importance of the military service because of having a father and several uncles who served in the armed services. They have fought for our freedom and because of this it has allowed us to live freely. We are gratified to be called into action to provide an honorable and distinguished veteran’s service that honors your veteran for the service that he or she so proudly has given. Trust that we will exhaust all efforts to make your Military Honors Service a memorable one.
