Monday, May 30th is Memorial Day when our country pays tribute to the memory of veterans who have served and sacrificed while protecting our freedom. USBA salutes all American veterans on this special day and every day. You are the backbone of our country.
As part of its commitment to honoring the memory of each veteran and his or her family members, the VA provides memorial benefits many people don’t realize are available.
Veterans with a qualifying discharge are entitled to these VA burial benefits in one of the 134 VA national cemeteries or in a private cemetery of the family’s choice. Spouses and dependent children are also eligible for memorial benefits, even if they die before the veteran. Learn more here.
As a tribute to our USBA members and all who have served, we have created this special video postcard for Memorial Day 2016. Please feel free to share it with others.
