Military Honors at Funerals
Written by Webmaster Bob   
Mar 07, 2014 at 01:02 PM

VFW's and American Legions provide full military honors for qualified U.S. veterans as verified by a funeral home. All requests for Honor Guards must come from the funeral home only. The funeral home requires proof (DD-214) of service.

Funerals do not always offer military honors. ASK them to request it.
It is sad when a family waits until a funeral is eminent before trying to gather documents without success. Military papers are very important for many reasons, receiving honors at the funeral may be the last. One of the best places to file a DD-214 is with a VSO. To
join, veterans must submitt a copy of DD-214 for the post file as required by the IRS. Then let the family know.

To get a replacement DD-214 use a SF-180. Click here for form SF-180. That can be done on line or snail mail. Please let veterans get the honors they deserve. Don't let this info remain secret !!
And please contact soon after the passing.

Capability Marks Major Milestone in VA Transformation to Digital Claims Process

WASHINGTON (June 18, 2013)- A new online application from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) enables disability compensation claims to be processed faster in a more end-to-end electronic environment, and VA is urging Veterans and their Veterans Service Organization (VSO) representatives to make full use of its capabilities to receive speedier decisions and reduce the backlog of claims.

The availability of the joint VA-Department of Defense Web portal eBenefits, which now integrates with the new internal Veterans Benefits Management System (VBMS) electronic claims processing system, marks a major milestone in VA's transformation from paper claims records to a fully digital operating environment, one of the keys to VA's goal to eliminate the disability claims backlog by the end of 2015. VBMS has now been fielded at all 56 Regional Offices across the country, ahead of schedule. VA will continue to upgrade and improve VBMS based on user feedback, and add features and tools that make it faster and easier to process claims. Instead of filling out and mailing paper forms to VA, Veterans can now use eBenefits to enter claim information online using a step-by-step, interview-style application, with pre-populated data fields and drop-down menus similar to popular tax preparation software.
