Jarnigan’s Mortuary is proud to honor our country’s active duty military, and also our veterans.We also recognize our law enforcement, first responders, and firefighters. With this being said, we offer the “American Patriot” package to all those who are serving, or have served in our country in one of these ways. At Jarnigan, we truly honor the service and sacrifices our veterans have given to our nation. We specialize in paying lasting tributes to the memory of each and every veteran, as well as their families. Being a veteran with a qualifying discharge, the option of being buried in a State or National Cemetery is also available. Spouses and dependent children are also eligible, regardless if they predecease the veteran. All VA cemeteries require a marriage certificate for the spouse and a DD-214 for the veteran to be eligible for the services. You may also want to “pre-register” at the VA cemetery for the burial of the veteran and the spouse. The State of Tennessee provides the first three death certificates free of charge to the family of a passed veteran. All of the benefits listed below are considered “standard” benefits, and they all are available to all veterans with a qualifying discharge.
