The Funeral Directors who work with Martin Oaks Cemetery and Crematory, Inc recognize and admire the efforts and sacrifices made by veterans of the United States military. There is a beautiful story regarding Mr. Henry Stuehmeyer, a retired solider who passed away at the age of 93, after a life of dedicated service. In December 1944, Stuehmeyer, then only eighteen, was deployed to Marseilles, France, as a member of Canon Company C with the 23nd Infantry Regiment of the 42nd Rainbow Division. During his service, Stuehmeyer would see action in France, Germany, and Austria. He earned the first of his three Bronze Stars during the Rhine Offensive. In April 1945, Stuehmeyer along with the 42nd Division helped liberate 30,000 prisoners being held Dachau, a concertation camp created by Adolf Hitler.

In light of the heroic work of veterans such as the late Mr. Stuehmeyer, the funeral directors who work with Martin Oaks have made information regarding veterans funeral services available on the website. One may learn about the Military Funeral Honors ceremony that can be held for any eligible veteran. The website offers details about the service itself, eligibility requirements and includes important contact information.
Additionally, the website tells of the Burial benefits available to Texas Veterans that include a grave site in any of the 5 national cemeteries in Texas. Burial benefits also include opening and closing of the grave, perpetual care, a Government headstone or marker, a burial flag, and a Presidential Memorial Certificate, at no cost to the family.
Lastly, the funeral directors who work with Martin Oaks offer insight on prices and packages to veterans who honorably served in the U.S. Armed Forces. All too often, families discount the value of ceremony after the death of a loved one, and we certainly don t want the valued Veterans who served our country to make that mistake. Coming together after a loss is a very essential part of the grieving process.
