Veteran & First Responder Services
Restland Funeral Home and Cemetery honors and respects all veterans for their service, and proudly presents honorable and dignified arrangements. Veterans are eligible to participate in the American Heroes Program, which provides substantial savings both before need and at the time of need for veterans, their spouses and eligible family members.
Restland has five dedicated veterans’ sections including the original Field of Honor. Restland recently joined forces with several local volunteer groups to identify and photograph veterans’ graves at Restland — some with military service dating back to the Civil War and the Spanish-American War. The hundreds of veterans buried here are honored each year on Veterans Day and Memorial Day with special ceremonies, flags and gatherings of veterans’ groups, family members and friends. The City of Dallas has also held its annual Memorial Day services at Restland since 1940. The Avenue of Flags provides a special tribute in which the flag that was given to the family to drape the casket is flown in the cemetery during Memorial Day weekend. The flagpoles are labeled with the veterans’ names.
*American Hero Plan savings and discounts are on burial spaces, interment services, outer burial container, memorial, casket, professional services such as embalming and body preparation, the services of our funeral director and staff, and cremation.
