Veterans Sea Burial

Veterans Sea Burial

United States navy program

The United States Navy offers a sea burial program free of charge for the following individuals:

  • Members of the uniformed services,
  • Retirees and veterans who were honorably discharged from any branch of the service.
  • Dependent family members of active duty personnel, retirees, and uniformed services veterans.
  • U.S. civilian marine personnel of the Military Sea Lift Command.

Both cremated and non-cremated remains can be buried at sea by the Navy. Families are not permitted to attend the service which is performed at a date and time chosen by the Navy.   After completing all necessary forms, the remains must be delivered to one of several ports where the service is available.  When a full body is to be buried at sea, the casket must be prepared according to Navy guidelines and transported by a funeral director at the family's expense.
