A Final Salute to Those Who Served our Nation

The Guards of Honor, the firing of volley shots, a fighter plane fly-over, the call of Taps, the folding of our flag, a horse-drawn caisson or a lone bagpiper – are time-honored ceremonies that venerate those who served in our Armed Forces.

Memorial Masters respectfully captures, beautifully communicates and digitally preserves military burials through our Final Salute documentary services for veterans of all military branches.

Our death is not an end if we can live on in our children and the younger generation. For they are us; our bodies are only wilted leaves on the tree of life.

Because life is fragile and death inevitable, we must make the most of each day.
