Veterans Day is next Monday, 11 November. In keeping with this, our featured document is the Military Funeral Honors Kit, a publication of the U.S. Department of Defense that provides information on the burial rites available for eligible veterans of the U.S. military. The kit contains a FAQ pamphlet, pamphlets on the nature of the memorial and eligibility, information on correct folding and placement of the U.S. flag for military funerals, and a C.D. recording of “Taps.” Remember that all eligible veterans in the United States are entitled by law to a military funeral if requested by the family of the deceased.
