In order to apply for any available military benefits, we must have a copy of the discharge called a Form DD-214 (Click here to see a sample Form DD-214).  Older veterans may have a discharge that simply reads “Record of Military Service”.  We cannot apply for any benefits without one of these discharge forms.  If you do not have a copy of the discharge, we will try to obtain a copy on your behalf. 

 

If you have any questions or concerns regarding military honors, please feel free to contact Goldsteins’ Rosenberg’s Raphael-Sacks via phone at 215-927-5800 or 800-622-6410 or via email at info@goldsteinsfuneral.com
