Knollcrest Lends A Helping Hand To Veterans

Knollcrest Went Out Of Their Way To Lend A Helping Hand To The Veterans

One might assume every funeral home goes the extra mile for the Veterans who’ve gone the extra mile for us. According to Marine Veteran Larry Olson, that’s not the case. After it was his privilege to take part in a memorial ceremony at Knollcrest to honor a fellow Vet, Mr. Olson stated, “I believe that Knollcrest went out their way to help us, lend a helping hand to the Veterans and they were very respectful. We don’t get that everywhere else”. They should. And here, they always will.

Why Knollcrest Takes Extra Care of the Veterans

When our veterans enlisted, they placed their lives on the line. They sacrificed many things for love of country and love of their countrymen. This sacrifice deserves our respect, and extra care in the services we provide them.

Knollcrest Funeral Home in Lombard makes sure every veteran receives all the benefits to which he or she is entitled, including an American Flag, a VA headstone, and a member of the Armed Forces present at each service to play “Taps” and present the American Flag to the family.

We highly encourage our local military families to choose Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery for their burials. We are blessed with national cemetery within driving distance, where all burial services are free of charge for a veteran, a veteran’s spouse, and a veteran’s dependent children.

Many veterans are unaware of the benefits available to them to honor their service. When it comes to taking care of veterans, we think the extra time and care required is an honor to provide.
