Veterans Funeral Services

Serving United States Veterans of Armed Services is something we take serious at Mullins Memorial. Our founder’s father, David Michael Mullins is a US Army Vietnam War Veteran whom was awarded multiple medals including the Purple Heart and The Bronze Star. We take pride in serving Veteran families but also ensuring that each one of those families knows what they are entitled to whether we pursue those entitlements on their behalf, or not. It’s only right.

  • When death occurs in a V.A. (Veterans Affairs) Hospital, the family will be reimbursed by the government for the funeral home’s pick-up charges as well as the hearse charge going to the cemetery.
  • Burial in the National Cemetery at no charge. (In order to be buried with their spouse, the spouse of the veteran may have to pay an opening and closing fee to the cemetery.) Not the case at Sarasota National Cemetery.
  • Military personnel who die in the line-of-duty would receive all the benefits listed above, plus other monetary benefits as determined by the government.

There is never an additional fee for Mullins Memorial to assist a family with securing any of these entitlements. It is part of our service to these special families.
