My Uncle, aged 100 passed away and had left one of the best gifts for his family…pre-arrangements for his cremation and burial at the National Cemetery in Lake Worth, Florida through the Neptune Society. Since I had to move him across the state after he turned 100 I didn’t know what would happen. Since we were within 75 miles of the Cemetery we were able to have Neptune Fort Myers make all the arrangements. Roger De Franco helped to make a difficult time much less stressful with his professionalism, expertise, and guidance. Everything was able to be completed over the phone and electronically- seamless and effortless. I would recommend him and the Neptune Society to everyone in need.

What every veteran should know about cremation benefits
United States veterans are entitled to be buried or have their ashes interred in any National Cemetery that has available space at no charge. Currently, the Veterans Administration operates 125 national cemeteries, of which 65 are open for new casketed interments, and 21 are open to accept cremated remains only. Burial options are limited to those available at a specific cemetery but may include an in-ground casket or interment of cremated remains in a columbarium, the ground, or a scatter garden. The government runs these programs and benefits may change at any time.
