Holloway-Williams Funeral Home of Niles, Ohio Thanks All Veterans For Their Service.
Regardless of what type of services you are planning, whether it be burial in a cemetery or memorial service at the funeral home or a church, military honors may be incorporated into the service if eligible. We will assist you in getting the necessary information to the proper branch of service. We need a DD 214 form or honorable discharge certificate to request an honors detail.
Military veterans and their dependents are entitled to a variety of benefits depending on their circumstances. Contact the Veterans Affairs office to determine what benefit can be claimed and then gather the information requested.
