Johnson's Funeral Home believes the story of every veteran's life deserves to be shared. We are deeply committed to providing families with exceptional veterans services and can assist you in securing military burial benefits. When it comes time for you to make arrangements for the veteran in your life, know that our staff is both qualified and committed to providing them with the military honors they deserve.
Many of us give a "thank you" to veterans when we meet them, see them or even just pass by. For some veterans, it is difficult to accept the gratitude of their community. In the online article, "Your 'Thank You' to Veterans is Welcomed, but Not Always Comfortably Received", author Bill Briggs spoke with National Guard Staff Sgt. Scott Gilbreath who served more than 20 years in the Army: “It is hard to pin down why we soldiers have the uncomfortable feeling when someone says thank you. Thank you? For doing the job that we were trained to do?” Another veteran, Robert Sanders spent time in Afghanistan and says, "When complete strangers offer ex-military members some blanket gratitude for their service, it 'makes us squirm a little'."
If the veteran in your life was also uncomfortable with such appreciation, it can be comforting for your family to arrange for full military honors during their service. This is the perfect way to show your gratitude in a highly-respected manner.
When arranging for veterans' burial services, you can rely on us to complete all the necessary paperwork involved in obtaining the military death and burial benefits that are available. These can include:
