imageFor the men and women who have sacrificed their service to America, Aurora Casket Company offers a program to honor and support past, present and future generations of U.S. Veterans. The Aurora Honoring the Veteran program enables participating funeral homes across the country to provide a special tribute recognizing and memorializing the sacrifice of those who have served.

Aurora?s program contributes a charitable donation on behalf of the deceased to the American Red Cross, Vietnam Veterans of America or the National World War II Museum. The donation is completed by Aurora Casket at no cost to the family or funeral home when the family chooses an Aurora casket. When planning a funeral, families need simply ask their funeral director for the Aurora Honoring the Veteran program.

?This program embodies all that Aurora stands for ? helping our funeral home partners create an honorable closure to every life,? said Aurora President Bill Backman, III. ?The U.S. Department for Veterans Affairs estimates that 850 U.S. Veterans die each day. Our Honoring the Veteran program is a way for our company to honor the sacrifice of these American heroes.?
