Who is not eligible?
Some veterans are not eligible for funeral honors. This includes, for example, those discharged from the Armed Forces under dishonorable conditions or individuals sentenced to death or life imprisonment without parole for a federal or state capital offense. If you have eligibility questions, talk to your Service point of contact.
Further clarification on eligibility is available in Title 10 and Title 38, United States Code, which are available on this web site: https://www.dmdc.osd.mil
