The team at Dignity Memorial has put together a great program for homeless Veterans. They have put together a Burial Program that provides dignified burial services for eligible homeless and indigent veterans to ensure they receive the honors in death that their service in life merited.
The program is currently available in 35 cities across the country. Since inception in 2000, the Dignity Memorial Homeless Veterans Burial Program has provided burial services for more than 1,000 homeless veterans. Homeless and indigent veterans who have no family to claim them are identified and provided with a proper military burial. Dignity Memorial providers supply preparation of the body, transportation, clothing, casket and coordination of the funeral service. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs provides eligible veterans with the opening and closing of the gravesite, a grave liner, a headstone or marker, a graveside ceremony and burial in a National Cemetery.
This is a wonderful initiative and I am honored just to feature it on MakeHoustonGreat.com. To learn more, please visit DignityMemorial.com.
