To the Veterans We Serve
At Yates Funeral Home, our qualified and experienced staff is knowledgeable in handling the details of making burial and cremation arrangements for Veterans and their families.
Among the benefits veterans are entitled, all honorably discharged Veterans, their spouses and dependent children are eligible for a grave space, cemetery marker and burial vault at any National Cemetery at no charge to the family.*
We will assist you in applying for all Veterans' benefits, arranging social security benefits, processing life insurance, and arranging for military honors.
If you have questions or need additional assistance in determining your or your loved one's eligibility for Veterans' benefits or for use of our Country's National Cemeteries, please call and speak with one of our dedicated staff representatives.
