Soldiers Rest

doughboy11Brown County provides free burial plots to Veterans and their spouses who are County Residents, in accordance with the Rules and Regulations Governing Soldiers Rest Cemeteries.

The Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) provides a U.S. flag at no cost, to drape the casket or accompany the urn of a deceased veteran who served honorably in the U. S. armed forces. It is furnished to honor the memory of a veteran’s military service to his or her country.

Generally, the flag is given to the next-of-kin as a keepsake after its use during the funeral service. When there is no next-of-kin, VA will furnish the flag to a friend making a request for it. For Soldiers Rest cemeteries with an Avenue of Flags, families or friends of veterans buried in these cemeteries may donate the burial flags of their loved ones to be flown on patriotic holidays.
