Veterans have "earned benefits" for funeral services at nearby Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery 



The Anderson-Goodale Family is strongly committed to the many Veterans in all of the communities they serve. With full service locations in Crest Hill/Plainfield, Romeoville and Lockport, we are centrally available to many veteran families. 


Veterans are entitled to “Earned Benefits” for service members with a DD-214, honorably discharged from all branches of the US Military. Their burial or (cremated remains) are interred at no charge in recognition of their loyal service to the country. These benefits extend to their spouse and dependent children of a Veteran. 


Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery, being very close to us is even more of a convenience for Veteran Families.. There is a Columbarium for final disposition of Cremation Urns. Services at the cemetery include full military honors. We can formally  request military honors from the Veteran's branch of the service. Those include; American Flag for either a casket or an urn, the playing of Taps, a presentation of the flag to the next of kin, and a gravestone marker for the resting place of the Veteran. All these funeral expenses are covered at a National Cemetery, saving survivors a significant funeral expense. 


If a family chooses another cemetery, which is not a designated National Cemetery, military honors can be requested and fulfilled as well; (i.e. Flag, playing of Taps, Flag presentation to family, and gravestone) For full burial and entombment expenses to be covered, the final disposition must take place at a National Cemetery.


What we'll require to set up these arrangements is DD-214 documentation. If the document has been lost or misplaced, we will help you in replacing it. Having these documents in a safe place, even on file at Anderson-Goodale Memorial Homes ensures much efficiency, seeing to it that full benefits are passed along to every special person in uniform who has served our nation in the military.


 Anderson-Goodale Memorial Homes have years of experience in helping Veterans, Spouses and Dependent family members achieve their full measure of benefits for their service. You may Pre-Plan ( a real comfort and strong recommendation for Veterans) or you can access these benefits At-Need (time of passing) We will see to it your Veteran loved one receives the full treatment they have earned.
