Hi Everyone

 

 

This Thursday, Feb. 13th, the following funerals are scheduled for 8:40 AM at the Southern Nevada Veteran's Memorial Cemetery, 1900 Veteran's Memorial Drive, Boulder City, 89005.  These interments are for Nevada's fallen veterans who are without family, homeless, indigent or just forgotten by family and friends and remain unclaimed.

 

This week's internments are:

 

Army veterans: Stuart Scher and Stanley Wayson

Marine  veteran: James Cline

 

 

For anyone interested in riding over together, some of us meet for breakfast at the IHOP ( 4860 Boulder Hwy ) diagonally across the street from Sam's Town at around 6:50 AM.  It will be KSU at 7:50 AM.

 

Thank you Bob Donaghy

FW: Cemetery Info


Thank You

To all my fellow veterans friends and family my we all remember 

Robert - Here's the info you requested.

   George





Urns – If you are cremated and buried, you can use just about anything you want for an urn as long as it is in good taste and can be sealed. This includes metal ammo boxes, tool boxes, fire extinguishers and disarmed artillery shells, mortar shells and bombs.
They can dig some fairly deep (5') vertical holes but you need to keep the diameter size to a minimum.

I would suggest some serious coordination with the cemetery before trying some of this stuff. They are really nice people but they don't like some types of surprises.

Urns going into a niche in the columberium are restricted to the size of the niche. (19"H, 9"W, 17"D minus 1" each corner)
_______________________________________________________


Husband/Wife Burials – You can prequalify to get into the veterans cemetery but you can't reserve a specific spot.

Exception – If a husband and wife are both veterans, they are each entitled to their own plot. When the first one passes the plot next to them can be reserved for the spouse. This also works for cremated burials and niches. This doesn't work if the first to go is cremated and the second is a casket burial or vise versa.

The cemetery cannot read minds. If you want this type of arrangement you need to let them know, be specific and get the arrangement in writing.

Plots without interment - If you donate your body to science, are buried at sea or sent into space you still earned a plot in the cemetery and a headstone and can request one. You may still be able to have a Honor Guard and Flag. You need to request them.

Memorial Services – The Chapel at the cemetery is available for memorial services without interment on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Usually in the afternoons from 1300hrs. on.

You need to request a time slot – don't just show up with a bunch of people.
