The OAL Service and Distribution Center (SDC), Operations Division, has the distinguished honor of providing the final tribute to our Nations Veterans by providing a flag to the next of kin.
The SDC distributes burial flags to VA facilities throughout the country and around the world. The flags are then distributed 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. More information on burial flags and burial benefits available at the Burial & Memorials and Burial Benefits web sites.
Complete guidance on ordering flags may be found in SDC Memorandum 796-13-01, Guidance for the Distribution and Replenishment of Burial Flags.
