Additional Veteran Benefits

Veteran cemetery
In addition to coordinating military honors related to the service itself, Parsels Funeral Home can help you and your loved ones communicate with the US Department of Veterans (VA) to arrange for multiple benefits. We are happy to guide you through the process of obtaining these benefits. They include:

A Presidential Memorial Certificate

This certificate expresses the nation’s recognition of the veteran’s service. The veteran’s name is inscribed, and the certificate bears the signature of the president. These certificates are issued in the name of honorably discharged, deceased veterans.

Headstones or Markers

The VA provides headstones and markers for the graves of veterans anywhere in the world and eligible dependents of veterans buried in national, state, veteran, or military hospitals.

Memorial Plots

If an eligible veteran’s remains are not available for burial, the VA will provide a plot and headstone or marker in a national cemetery to memorialize the veteran. If you and your loved ones wish to place the memorial in a cemetery other than a national cemetery, the VA will provide the headstone or marker. However, they will not provide a plot.

Burial in a VA National Cemetery

The VA provides additional benefits in delivering a gravesite, opening and closing the grave, a grave box, and perpetual care.

Headstones or Markers

For more information on eligibility and the different levels of potential reimbursement, please review the guide to VA Burial Allowances.

Ash Scattering Services

Urn for cremation and ash scattering

After a cremation, you must decide what to do with the ash remains of your loved one. The most common options include: 

  • Keeping the remains at home
  • Placing them in a Columbarium at a cemetary
  • Scattering in a meaningful place 

While you do have options, it’s crucial to follow the rules and regulations set by the state for scattering ashes. Below is a list of common state regulations:

  • Obtain written permission from the property owner if you wish to scatter the ashes on private property.
  • Obtain a scattering permit if you wish to scatter in a public park
  • The Clean Water Act maintains that in order to scatter ashes in inland waters, you must obtain a permit from the agency that oversees waterways.
  • The Environmental Protection Agency maintains that you notify the regional office if you wish to scatter at sea (in writing and within 30 days after scattering). You must also maintain a distance of three nautical miles from the coastline
