Veterans are very special people among the rest of us. They served and sacrificed for us. Honestly, they ask for very little in return and consider their service an honor. A free nation owes its freedom to the men and women who serve generation after generation. At Sax-Tiedemann, we are entering our 4th generation of service to our community. We have always treasured our veterans and made it our mission to ensure that the earned benefits they are entitled, are carried out and delivered.
Veterans and their spouse (and dependent children) are entitled to burial at no cost at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in Elwood, Illinois. These costs represent a significant savings to veterans and their families, and provide a beautiful and honorable place. A headstone marker is also provided, as well as an American Flag, and a ceremony from the branch of the service the veteran served in. We advise veterans and families to locate and maintain their DD-214 Discharge documents that expedite the process of securing all of the benefits veterans are entitled to. We can even keep a copy of the document on file at the funeral home.
In addition, on the property immediate east of Sax-Tiedemann is a beautiful and spacious Veteran’s Memorial to all the branches of the service built by the Village of Franklin Park to honor the men and women who served and continue to serve in uniform. We have performed military honors and services in the beautiful plaza among the monuments to each branch of the service. This is available to Veterans. We maintain a very close relationship with the VFW Post 974 of Franklin Park to assist us with honoring veterans.
If you are a Veteran or your loved one is, please locate and secure your discharge documents (DD-214). This expedites the process of ensuring every Veteran receives the benefits they’ve earned and richly deserve.
