Funeral Services

American Legion Post #148 will conduct graveside funerals for any military veteran in most areas of Ingham County. They did not need to be a member of a veterans group, such as the American Legion or the V.F.W.

The Post’s Funeral Detail practices the first Monday of every month from April through December.

The Post will provide a uniformed color guard, flag folding, firing squad and bugler.

Families of all honorably discharged Post #148 veterans are entitled to an American Flag for the casket or cremation, and a 12” x 24” brass grave marker free of charge.

Ask your funeral director to contact the Post at 517- 676-1651 or 616-886-0963.
