June Events

  • Great Lakes National Cemetery Bus Tour - Royal Oak

    Tuesday, June 20, 2017 : 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM

    Wm. Sullivan & Son Funeral Directors will host a free bus trip to the Great Lakes National Cemetery for veterans and their families on Tuesday, June 20th.

    “There is no charge for veterans, their spouses or dependent children to be buried at the cemetery,” said Sullivan co-owner Michael Lope. “That can be a substantial savings over the cost of the average cemetery plot in southeast Michigan, not to mention a headstone.”

    Burial benefits include the grave itself, grave opening and closing, perpetual care, grave liner, a headstone or marker, a burial flag and a Presidential Memorial Certificate. Spouses’ and dependent children’s names and dates of birth and death will be inscribed on the veteran’s headstone, at no cost to the family. Veterans who choose cremation may have an urn placed in the columbarium wall or in an in ground grave.

    There are 131 national cemeteries. The first were built in 1862 during the Civil War. Today, more than 3.7 million people are interred there.
