Fort Howard Memorial Park offers an exceptional benefit program in honor of our exceptional Military Veterans in the community.
Knowing that our Veterans deserve to receive recognition for their service in life and death, the programs offered at our cemetery allow permanent recognition in dignified, honorable areas of the cemetery that have been dedicated for Veteran burials.
Each honorably discharged military veteran is entitled to one free grave space when these arrangements are preplanned. Endowment care is required to be paid due to state regulations on this fee.
Ground burial arrangements will be enhanced with the free memorial that is issued by the Veteran Administration at the time of death. Several beautiful granite base and vase options are available for the free memorial to be installed on.
Additionally, military themed outer burial containers (vaults) and cremation urns are available.
Above ground casket and cremation options are also available through our Veteran program.
- Several military themed corridors are focal points inside our beautiful mausoleum/chapel building.
- Inventory is available in a grand “flag wall” bay where the marble fronts are designed to depict a large American flag.
- There are also exterior crypts in our courtyard with an American flag flying in the center of this area.
- Fort Howard Memorial Park’s Field of Honor is a distinguished section of the cemetery that shows off the glory of Veteran through uniform granite bases for the Veteran Administration memorial. Each memorial also has a flag holder incorporated into it so that a small American flag can be on display during appropriate weather months.
- Veteran emblems can be added to crypts (for caskets) niches (for cremation) or any type of memorial stone to enhance the space and proudly display your military service.
Veteran Avenue of Flags
Being an honorably discharged military veteran deserves recognition for the duration of your life and in death. Fort Howard Memorial Park offers our exclusive Avenue of Flags Program in order to proudly display the American Flag that is presented at the funeral ceremony.
This flag is a “symbol of our country’s appreciation for the honorable and faithful service” and is presented at the graveside service after taps is played. This flag then can be flown in our Avenue of Flags program upon enrollment into the program. This program entails:
- Personalized flagpole with Veteran’s name, war service and branch of military
- Display of flag on Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day (weather dependent) each year
- Proper storage of the flag between holidays
There is a one-time fee for this program. Please inquire for pricing.
