Military Honors

Depending on the service you choose, Camas Cremation can help obtain military honors for the Veteran depending on eligibility and availability. This can include the following:
- Rifle Volley
- Playing of TAPS
- Presentation of the U.S. Flag to the next of kin

Camas Cremation requests that every family have access to their Veteran’s discharge papers (aka DD-214) or call/email in advance so we may assist in locating a copy through the Veteran’s Administration.
