Jewish Family Service, in conjunction with the Missing in America Project, performed a full military burial service at the National Cemetery in Quantico, Va. for the cremains of 22 non-Jewish veterans and two non-Jewish veteran spouses on October 27.
The two nonprofits worked closely to provide this military burial.
JFS, through its Personal Affairs Management, accepts responsibility for end of life and after life decisions for its clients, regardless of affiliation. The Missing in America Project’s mission it is “to locate, identify, and inter the unclaimed cremated remains of American veterans.”
Along with more than 100 veteran escorts who joined by motorcycle from Tidewater, Williamsburg, and points north of Quantico, representatives from both organizations travelled to Quantico “to provide honor and respect to those who have served this country by securing a final resting place for these forgotten heroes.”
