Ruckers Mortuary will assist families in applying for veterans' benefits. These benefits are provided at no cost to family members to recognize the sacrifice and contributions of our Nation's veterans. Some benefits that are commonly provided are:
  • U.S. burial flag
  • Standard grave marker
  • Monetary burial benefit
  • Burial in the State or National Veterans Cemetery
  • Military funeral honors

All veterans are eligible to apply for a U. S. burial flag, a standard grave marker and a monetary burial benefit. In general, any deceased veteran who was discharged under conditions other than 'dishonorable' is eligible for a burial flag and standard grave marker. To receive any monetary benefits, the deceased veteran must have been currently receiving disability compensation, been discharged due to line-of-duty disabilities or been under medical care in a veteran approved facility. A spouse or dependent may be eligible for monthly survivors benefits in special cases.
Veterans may also be eligible for military honors. The core elements of the military funeral ceremony is flag folding, flag presentation and taps. A color guard and firing squad are not always available, but the military will make every effort to provide honors.
