We are your Veteran Benefit Experts

Too often, we have had families come in to take care of the final arrangements for their loved one and tell us "They were a Vet, the VA takes care of everything."  Sadly, that is not the case and many of our Veterans in Loma Linda are under the wrong impression.  Burial in a National Cemetery is covered, but unfortunately mortuary expenses are not covered by the Veterans Administration unless the death was service related.  Sunset Funeral Care can help you obtain reimbursement forms for certain cases. We provide funeral services for veterans in

Burial in the National Cemetery is available to eligible Veterans, their spouses and dependent children.  At no cost to the family, a National Cemetery burial includes:
   *the grave-site (for cremains or full body)
   *opening and closing of the grave
   *a headstone or marker
   *perpetual care as part of a national shrine

If a Veteran is buried in a private cemetery anywhere in the world, the VA will provide a headstone or marker. 

A burial flag is available to drape the Veteran's casket or urn during the funeral.

Presidential Memorial Certificates honoring the Veteran may be requested by the funeral home.

Military Funeral Honors for the Veteran include a burial flag folding and presentation and "Taps" played on a bugle or by recording. 

Sunset Funeral Care will guide you through services at a National Cemetery and make all of the phone calls and requests for your family.  If you have any questions about your eligibility please call us at (909) 334-4017.  We can make sure to get everything taken care of ahead of time.
