HONORS & FLAGS

U.S Flag

The VA provides an American flag to drape the casket of a veteran or a person entitled to retired military pay. Fischer Funeral Care will obtain and provide a U.S. Flag for any qualified veteran.

 

The flag can be formerly presented to the next of kin during the funeral or following the funeral service, the flag may be given to the next of kin or a close associate. The VA also will issue a flag on behalf of a service member who was missing in action and later presumed dead. Flags are issued at VA regional offices, national cemeteries, and post offices.
