If the soldier had an Honorable Discharge. 3707The only thing that is free is the plot, opening & closing of the grave, headstone & military honors.
You are responsible for the casket, funeral services, prayer cards, video & police escorts.
If and when pay for the funeral home you have to show the VA Comission the paid in full receipts along with necessary forms such as DD214, death certificate and other documents they require. They then fill out paperwork and tell you if and how much they will pay BUT it takes 6 months.
