For Our Veterans
Many of the first families served by James B. Earthman (great-grandson of American Revolution veteran, Isaac Earthman) were those of Civil War veterans. It is for this reason and continued gratitude to today’s veterans that Generations pays a special tribute to those who have served our country.
Funeral and Memorial benefits provided to military veterans may include:
Interment at Houston National or other National Cemetery eligibility.

Benefits are typically made available to those veterans Honorably Discharged and documentation of a veteran’s military service (form DD-214) must be provided.
