Ordering VA Plaques
Are you a family member of a veteran?
You can order them a Veterans grave marker or emblem free of charge, if they have passed away. This link to the US Department of Veterans Affair will help you get started: http://www.cem.va.gov/cem/hmm/order_instructions.asp This link has pictures of what your grave marker choices are too, so be sure to navigate to those options, once you get to the web site.
You basically need to gather the Veterans DD214 form (military discharge paper), fill out a form and mail it to the government.
The Bronze Markers and Emblem choices can be mounted to the Veteran’s monument. If your cemetery allows, we suggest this option because it keeps the Veteran’s marker off the ground and away from getting damaged, when the grass is cut.
Your local Veterans Office is another source of information. They are very helpful and can answer many questions and help families fill out the forms. See the links below.
