Gunderson Funeral Home is especially proud of the role our veterans have played in the freedoms we enjoy today. We offer specialty packages developed to honor each veteran's service. Our veterans deserve the utmost respect, they will be given full military honors and interment in a local, state or national cemetery.
Honorably Discharged Veterans may be eligible for the following items:
- American Flag
- Military Rites (including gun salute, playing of
Taps, and the folding and presenting the flag) performed at the cemetery or place of service.
- Burial in a National or State owned Veterans Cemetery.
- Veterans Headstone or Marker
- In some cases, monetary benefits may be available
- In addition, Gunderson Funeral Home provides a complimentary protective flag case and a personalized, framed Ray Simon military print. The family is asked to provide a copy of the discharge papers (DD214) in order for us to assist them in obtaining those benefits.
