Mission Statement


The mission of the Veteran Urn Project is to ensure that every veteran of the United States Armed Forces, however destitute at the time of their death, be put into their final resting place in a dignified and respectful manner. We do this out of respect for their service and the sacrifices they made on behalf of their families and our great nation.
