Military Funeral Honors

The rendering of military funeral honors is a way to show the nation’s deep gratitude to those who have faithfully defended our country, whether in times of war or peace. This ceremonial paying of respects is the final demonstration a grateful nation can provide to its veteran’s families. Wujek-Calcaterra is honored to assist any eligible Veteran to receive a military funeral honors ceremony, to include folding and presenting the United States burial flag and the playing of Taps. Any veteran who served more than 90 days of active duty in the Armed Services and who separated on any condition other than dishonorable is entitled to receive military honor. Please provide to us a copy of the veteran’s Honorable Discharge (form DD-2I4) so that we may assist you.
