Families of Veterans

Jenkins Funeral Chapel has been selected to become an exclusive, certified “Veterans & Family Memorial Care Provider.” VFMC Providers are selected for upholding the highest level of ethical business standards and integrity while providing outstanding, affordable, professional service. Our staff has deep roots in our community. We are extremely knowledgeable and well trained to assist families with every aspect of the final arrangement process. Working closely with VFW, American Legion, Hospice and other Veterans and civic organizations has been the cornerstone of our success.

In addition to providing Veterans and their spouses with a 10% discount off funeral & cremation pre-arrangements, Veterans & Family Memorial Care Providers encourage Veterans to take full advantage of their FREE BURIAL BENEFIT guaranteed to them by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Choosing a Veterans State or National cemetery for burial results in an average savings of $5,000-$7,000 per person.  “This is a huge savings compared to purchasing cemetery property and related merchandise from a private or corporate owned cemetery,” said Mark Davis, President & CEO of Veterans & Family Memorial Care. “That amounts to a total of $10,000-$14,000 for a married couple.” The VA recently did a survey resulting in a finding that at least one-third of all veterans were unaware that they were entitled to free burial at any of the nation’s 125 National Cemeteries.”

The government does an excellent job providing veterans and their spouses with burial benefits if you use a Veterans State or National cemetery, however there are very limited benefits for the funeral or cremation. Keith Jenkins, owner of Jenkins Funeral Chapel has demonstrated a willingness and commitment to reach out to veterans and their families by extending benefits and savings beyond those provided by the U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs. This includes a complimentary wood & glass Flag Case to the surviving spouse of a deceased Veteran.

The VA prepares the gravesite, carries out the burial, furnishes a headstone or marker and a flag, and provides perpetual care. The department does not provide veterans funeral or cremation arrangements, transportation or military honors, all of which can be arranged through Jenkins Funeral Chapel.
