We at Kuratko-Nosek Funeral Home are especially proud of the role our veterans have played in the freedoms we enjoy today. We have developed special packages that include features and tributes to honor a veteran’s service.
We will complete all applications for any benefits to which a veteran or their family are entitled to and eligible for. The Veteran’s Administration provides benefits for a veteran’s family if they can provide a copy of discharge papers which indicate an honorable discharge. These benefits include a flag, burial in a national veteran’s cemetery, a grave marker or medallion and military honors at the cemetery. If burial takes place in a veteran’s cemetery, a grave can also be reserved for a surviving spouse.
There are also monetary allowances toward burial expenses and transportation if the veteran’s death occurs in a VA hospital, a VA contracted nursing home or if the veteran was receiving a VA pension at the time of their death.
