To the Veterans We Serve
At Yates Funeral Home, our staff is trained to handle the details of making burial and cremation arrangements for veterans. Did you know that all honorably discharged Veterans, their spouses and dependent children are entitled to a grave space, cemetery marker and burial vault at any National Cemetery and all is at no charge to the family? Depending on your eligibility, we can either assist you in applying for all Veterans' benefits, arranging social security benefits, processing life insurance and even arranging for military honors.
If you have questions or need additional assistance in determining eligibility for use of our Country's National Cemeteries, please call and speak with one of our knowledgeable staff representatives. Please click this Contact Us Link to view our contact information.
