Flag Retirement Program with Yates Funeral Home & Crematory

At the time of a veteranís death and the family chooses cremation, permission will be sought for an unusable flag to drape that veteran for disposal in the most dignified manner.

Upon receipt of the cremated remains of their veteran, the family will receive a certificate stating the last deed of service for that flag which was to drape their veteran in the cremation process. Unusable flags may be donated to the funeral home any day of the week.

A Presidential Memorial Certificate commemorating their service to our country with the Presidential Seal and Commander in Chiefís signature will be also be provided to the family.

Our staff is willing to answer any questions you may have about our Flag Retirement Program. Contact us.
