Distinctive Life Funeral Homes Proudly Serves Those Who Have Served in Our Military

It is our privilege and honor to serve America’s heroes.

Our commitment to you

We proudly serve those who have served in our military. We will work diligently to ensure you and your family receive all of the benefits deserved. Whether arranging a burial at a National Cemetery or a private cemetery, you can trust our experienced Funeral Directors to be knowledgeable on all Veterans Benefits. Your Veteran Benefits will not cover all funeral arrangements. It is important to understand what is covered and to plan for the details that are not. Distinctive Life will also help you apply for a United States burial flag. Our staff will handle coordination with military personnel. It is our privilege and honor to serve America’s heroes.

For more information about how we can help you plan a Veteran’s funeral service please contact us today.
