The Ceremony offers a unique and powerful way to memorialize and celebrate the life and legacy of your beloved.
The government issued United States Flag that draped the casket of your Veteran will fly high above the Veterans Memorial in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania.
Friends and Family Members will have an opportunity to speak about their Veteran at the ceremony for approximately five minutes.
It is a powerful, moving and well-deserved posthumous memorial to your family member who gave so much to our nation.
Ceremonies are held on the second Sunday of the month from April through November at 5 PM, weather permitting.
