This page is dedicated to the support of the Logistics Supply Chain which provides burial flags to the issuing office level. Individuals or authorized requestors wishing to apply for a burial flag should refer to the National Cemetery Administration’s (NCA) Burial Flags website for guidance on eligibility and application forms. Postmasters, Funeral Home Directors and VA Offices may use this page for information and guidance on burial flag distribution and support.
The VA Service and Distribution Center (SDC) supplies burial flags to VA facilities and U.S. Post Offices (USPS) throughout the country and around the world. The flags are then issued directly to funeral directors and families of deceased Veterans. Burial flags are provided free of charge to the next of kin of honorably discharged Veterans. Additional information on burial flags and burial benefits is available at the NCA Home Page.
Contact Lists for VA Regional Office Burial Flag Coordinators and Medical Center Burial Flag Distribution Points are available for postal employees and VA Staff to ensure Issuing Offices maintain a reliable inventory of Burial Flags available for issue upon request regardless of geographical location.
Complete guidance on ordering flags, applicable to the USPS and the VA may be found in SDC Memorandum 796-13-01, Guidance for the Distribution and Replenishment of Burial Flags.
