Military Burials for Buffalo & WNY

At John E Roberts Funeral Home, we appreciate our veterans and are honored to provide military burial services to honor what they have done for our country. Eligible veterans are entitled to Military Funeral Honors, free of charge, as mandated by law. These military honors include a rifle detail, a color guard, the playing of "Taps," and the presentation of a burial flag from uniformed service members, one of whom is a member of the deceased's parent service.

Military burial services consist, at a minimum, of a ceremony that includes the folding and presenting of the American flag to the next of kin and the playing of "Taps." The veteran's parent service representative will present the flag.
