There are many veteran benefits available that can be referenced at www.cem.va.gov
Veterans’ markers may be placed to mark an individual’s service. The application form for the marker is
available, upon request, at the cemetery office. Although there are several choices of type of marker, Fairview only allows the flat granite. The other various choices are given so that each cemetery has a type that conforms to their rules and regulations.
Once the applications is completed up to line 18, the form is returned to the cemetery with a photocopy
of the discharge papers, and a check for the current foundation fee. Fairview then processes the request through the Veterans Administration.
When the marker arrives, Fairview installs the marker on the foundation prepared and will notify the family of its placement.
Where appropriate the Veterans Administration will leave two (2) blank lines on the marker for a future spousal inscription. This inscription would necessitate the contracting of a monument company for that future inscription.
Please contact the office if you have additional questions or need an application.
