Serving our country in the military is an incredible commitment. We have a variety of unique programs available to all veterans and their families to honor that commitment. At Pederson-Volker Funeral Chapel & Cremation Services, we are proud to provide veteran's tributes and military funerals to the Chippewa Falls community.
Whether it's a military funeral or a tribute, our staff is here to ensure the arrangements for burial or cremation are made as smoothly as possible. One phone call to our Chippewa Falls funeral home is all that's needed to handle all the details, including answering questions about military protocol, assuring legal requirements are met, and providing necessary equipment, facilities, and technical services. We also assist you in obtaining all veterans’ benefits available, social security benefits, and life insurance.
Many veterans do not receive all of the benefits to which they are entitled. For instance, many aren't aware that all veterans, and possibly their spouses and children, are entitled to free cemetery spaces, grave opening/closing, grave liner and headstone at any state or national VA cemetery.Our Wisconsin funeral chapel is dedicated to providing you with all your funeral service options so you can make the best decision for you or your family.
Veterans' honor services
All honorably discharged veterans are deserving of military honors, which consist of a flag presentation to the next of kin, gun salute, and the playing of TAPS. Even if the veteran is not buried in a VA cemetery, honors can be arranged at any cemetery or place of your choosing (i.e. funeral home, church, park, etc.)
Local veterans from the Chippewa Falls VFW Post and the Chippewa Falls American Legion Post make up the Chippewa Falls Patriotic Council. The Patriotic Council provides military honors at cemeteries in and around Chippewa Falls. No payment is required for their services, but donations to their group are always greatly appreciated.
