Honoring Our Nation’s Heroes
At Forest Lawn, we are proud to salute all the men and women who have served, and their families. And we are honored to have in our perpetual care veterans of ten different wars, including seven Medal of Honor recipients. Only Arlington National Cemetery has more. With that in mind, we have designated sections of the cemetery specifically for veterans and their spouses and dependent children, just like national veterans cemeteries.
Veterans Field of Valor™
Options starting at $2,500 (See our financing options)
The Veterans Field of Valor™ is available exclusively to veterans, their spouses and heirs.
What are the benefits of burial in the Field of Valor?
Your family can choose the date and time of your burial. In a national cemetery, the date and time of your burial is determined by the cemetery and your family is told to report for the pre-scheduled burial.
Graves are marked by distinctive upright marble tablet memorials, provided FREE by the U.S. Government – just like those in Arlington and all National Cemeteries.
Here, you can be buried in your hometown, where you will be surrounded by your family, friends and neighbors, and in a place and manner consistent and unique to your religious beliefs and cultural heritage.
Our cemetery is close to home, which means that family and friends who wish to visit your final place of rest will have the ability to do so easily, even with public transportation or a short Uber ride.
On every Memorial Day and Veterans Day, all graves in the Field of Valor™ are decorated with U.S. flags and ceremonies are held to commemorate the sacrifices made by all those who have served.
