For Our Veterans
A military funeral is a memorial or burial rite given to military members on active duty or in the Selected Reserve and former military members who served on active duty and received an honorable discharge. A military funeral may feature guards of honor, the firing of volley shots as a salute, drumming and other military elements, including a flag draped coffin and presentation. Preparing for a military funeral demands detailed information and specific steps to be taken. The experienced staff at Kenny Funeral Home will take care of all the appropriate steps to ensure that the your loved one receives the honor he/she deserves.

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) furnishes upon request, at no charge to the applicant, a Government headstone or marker for the unmarked grave of any deceased eligible veteran in any cemetery around the world, regardless of their date of death.
Note: There is no charge for the headstone or marker itself, however arrangements for placing it in a private cemetery are the applicant's responsibility and all setting fees are at private expense.
Veteran Burial Flags
A United States flag is provided, at no cost, to drape the casket or accompany the urn of a deceased veteran who served honorably in the U. S. Armed Forces. It is furnished to honor the memory of a veteran's military service to his or her country.
