If your family member served in the armed forces, you have the option of providing them with a Military Honors Funeral, or MFH. The basic MFH will provide the family of the deceased veteran with a folded American flag and a playing of Taps, either by a live bugler or through a high-quality recording. This is the standard funeral service provided to deceased veterans across the country, and is performed by at least two members of the armed services – at least one of whom will be from the same branch as the deceased.
