Veteran Services

For all of us at Watson-Milton Funeral Home, there is no greater honor than serving the family of a loved one who spent their life serving our country. We are deeply committed to providing a service that is unique and meaningful. We are proud to provide professional assistance that includes helping you acquire and complete the necessary forms to obtain benefits specific to a deceased veteran.

When serving a veteran family, we help them understand the two most common questions.

“What benefits are available to Veterans?” & “Does my loved one qualify?”

We’ve included information here that will answer both questions, but most families want to know even more, which is why we have an easy form below to request more information. If you fill this out, a knowledgeable member of our staff will be happy to assist you.
