Veteran Services

Here at McMahon-Coyne-Vitantonio Funeral Homes, we believe that for every veteran, the story of their life and service deserves to be shared. We are deeply committed to providing families with exemplary veterans services; our experience working closely with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs secures military burial benefits. When it comes time for you to make arrangements for funeral services on behalf of the veteran in your life, know that our staff is both qualified and committed to providing them with the military honors they richly deserve.

Insights into the Veteran Mindset

It is often difficult for veterans to accept the gratitude of their community. In the online article, "Your 'Thank You' to Veterans is Welcomed, but Not Always Comfortably Received", author Bill Briggs cites National Guard Staff Sgt. Scott Gilbreath who served more than 20 years in the Army: “It is hard to pin down why we soldiers have the uncomfortable feeling when someone says thank you. Thank you? For doing the job that we were trained to do?” Another veteran, Robert Sanders spent time in Afghanistan and says, "When complete strangers offer ex-military members some blanket gratitude for their service, it 'makes us squirm a little'."

If the veteran in your life also found such verbal appreciation unnerving, it can be comforting for your family to arrange for full military honors during their funeral or memorial service. This is the perfect way to show your long-standing gratitude in a highly-respected and ritualized manner.

Know Your Allies

Our staff is fully committed to providing the highest level of service to your family. Each of us will go above and beyond to fulfill your family's wishes. When arranging for veterans' burial services, you can rely on us to complete all the necessary paperwork involved in obtaining the military death and burial benefits that are available. These can include:

  • Burial Flag
  • Headstone or Marker
  • Burial in a National or State Veterans Administration Cemetery
  • Presidential Memorial Certificate

We would like you to consider us your allies in this effort to express the gratitude and appreciation for their sacrifice and exemplary service. Call us at (440) 942-0700 to learn how we can work together to pay tribute to your veteran.
