The Bunker family has a proud history of military service going back to our founder, B. Allen Bunker (top row, second from right). One of the greatest honors we have is providing Veterans’ funeral services to the great people who served our country in the armed forces. We continue to support those who have served by offering the most comprehensive veterans’ options available.
Did you know that as an honorably discharged member of the armed forces you and your spouse are entitled to free burial at a Veterans’ Memorial Cemetery as well as other services worth up to $7,000?
These benefits include:
- United States flag
- Military Honors
- Taps and flag presentation by your branch of service
- Burial at the National Memorial Cemetery of Arizona
The Veterans Memorial Cemetery will provide:
- Cemetery plot
- Opening & closing the grave space
- Standard government liner
- Bronze grave marker
- Use of shelter for 30 minute services
We are fortunate to live close to the National Memorial Cemetery of Arizona, which is located at 23029 Cave Creek Road, Phoenix, AZ 85024. The cemetery is only open Monday through Friday.
If interred at Gilbert Memorial Cemetery, you are still entitled to a military grave marker. In addition to the benefits above, we provide special Veteran discount packages to those who pre-plan a funeral.
Though almost all honorably discharged members of the military qualify for these benefits, it’s important that your family has the proper documentation to prove that you qualify. To ensure that all of your paperwork is in order and your benefits are secure, we highly recommend meeting with one of our Veterans’
Advance Planning Specialists completely free of charge.
