Veteran Funeral Options at Memorial Properties
Memorial Properties’ Veteran’s Program proudly serves those who have served our country. We are honored to be a part of the Veterans & Family Memorial Care funeral home network, providing the best in care for those who served—and for those who love them. We are experts in arranging, directing, and coordinating all of the details surrounding the death of a veteran or a veteran’s family member. Membership is FREE and now open to honorably discharged veterans, along with their spouses, parents, and adult children.
For those veterans who have proudly called New Jersey their home, Memorial Properties offers outstanding veteran funeral services. Eligibility includes military members on active duty, United States veterans of war, both members and former members of the Selected Reserve, members who have served a minimum of one term of enlistment (so long as they did not separate as dishonorable), and those who are retired from the military. Veteran funeral services in NJ include several benefits such as the U.S. flag, an inscribed cemetery marker, a gun salute, transportation costs, and a burial in a national or state veterans’ cemetery within NJ. We want to make this process easier for you – please contact us at Memorial Properties today to get started with crafting a beautiful and respectful memorial for yourself or a veteran you have lost.
The Most Respected Veteran Funerals In NJ
As far as veteran funerals in NJ go, the services at Memorial Properties are unmatched. For retired military members’ funerals (those who have 20 or more years of service), we will contact and request an active duty honor guard from the deceased retired military member’s specific branch of service. This will then be followed by a ceremony that consists of a speech from a Chaplain, a flag folding and the presentation of that flag to the next of kin, a rifle salute, and the playing of Taps. For honorably discharged veterans with less than 20 years of service, the appropriate branch of service and local veterans group for Military Honors requests will be contacted. A burial ceremony will follow, including an honor guard rifle statue, flag folding and presentation to the next of kin, and the playing of Taps. Memorial Properties is dedicated to ensuring that each veteran’s wishes for their burial are met. We offer several burial options in NJ, including in-ground burial, above-ground burial, and cremation. No matter which option you prefer, you can rest assured that the above considerations will be taken for your ceremony.

Benefits for Veterans at Memorial Properties
Veteran burials always include universal items that are both sacred and significant to the veteran. Our veteran burials at Memorial Properties include a wooden flag case, provided by the U.S. military, for any active duty deaths. For other veteran burials, additional wooden flag cases are available and can be looked at upon request. Once the funeral service is complete and it is time for the burial portion of the ceremony, Memorial Properties will transport the group to a veteran cemetery location. All veterans, and sometimes even their spouses and children, receive a free cemetery space, grave opening and closing service, grave liner, and headstone.
We encourage all of those in NJ, including veterans and their families, to pre-plan their arrangements and save their loved ones stress and costs in the future. When you pre-plan with Memorial Properties, which often includes choosing how and where you would like to be buried, you will receive a certificate of credit up to $1495 to put towards an above-ground space, in-ground interment space, or community bible niche at one of our cemeteries or mausoleums in NJ. We want to ensure that all veterans can have a memorial service that truly honors the sacrifices they have made and that their families have a peaceful and serene place to visit for the rest of their lives.
