    Veteran’s Seminar

    Veteran’s Seminar presented by Fulton Theroux Funeral Services will be held on October 24th at 1:00pm. Veterans deserve all of our admiration and thanks for the service and sacrifice they have contributed towards for our country, freedoms, and families. During a veteran’s life they are entitled to many benefits from our government and even private companies in thanks of that service, and those benefits are generally well known and brought to the attention of our veterans and veteran’s organizations. One thing that is not as well-known is what a veteran is entitled to for their final honors and other veteran’s funeral benefits. Please join us for a free educational seminar all about benefits that a veteran is entitled to before and after a funeral is needed.
