Our Fallen

Chapter Presidents and members are reminded to encourage our elder members to   prepare a bio for the press and the funeral home.  We often get last minute requests from the family asking about their loved one’s service dates, rank, etc…  Please make sure that up-to-date bio information is ready at the Chapter level.  Members are reminded to report the passing of members and supporters immediately to our National Chaplain, Reverend James Moore at 843-846-0881 or email at: chaplain@montfordpointmarines.org

Our Heroes and Pioneers

Bereavement Counseling

 

What is Bereavement Counseling?

Bereavement counseling is assistance and support to people with emotional and psychological stress after the death of a loved one.  Bereavement counseling includes a broad range of transition services, including outreach, counseling, and referral services to family members.

 

Does VA Have Bereavement Counseling for Surviving Family Members?

The Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) offers bereavement counseling to parents, spouses and children of Armed Forces personnel who died in the service of their country.  Also eligible are family members of reservists and National Guardsmen who die while on duty.

 

Where Is Counseling Offered?

VA's bereavement counseling is provided at community-based Vet Centers located near the families.  There is no cost for VA bereavement counseling.

 

How Can You Obtain These Services?

Services are obtained by contacting Readjustment Counseling Service at 202-273-9116 or via electronic mail at vet.center@va.gov both of which are specific to this specialized service.  RCS staff will assist families in contacting the nearest Vet Center.  Often counseling can be made available in the family's home or where the family feels most comfortable.

National Cemetery Administration

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) furnishes upon request, at no charge to the applicant, a Government headstone or marker for the unmarked grave of any deceased eligible Veteran in any cemetery around the world, regardless of their date of death.

 

A Government-furnished headstone or marker may be provided for eligible Veterans who died on or after Nov. 1, 1990 and whose grave is marked with a privately purchased headstone. A Government-furnished medallion may be provided for eligible Veterans who served on or after Apr. 6, 1917 and whose grave is marked with a privately purchased headstone or marker.
