about burial options.

1. Yes. I've been getting those

entries for a contest to win a free cremation.

If they are transferable, I might be interested in 2.

7. Hmmm, I wonder...

I've never received those, and I'm hip deep in the VA med system. Have you checked the fine print? I didn't think they sent out solicitations.

8. I think you are right.

Third party leeches. VA is referenced only as me being a VET.

9. I'm glad you caught that...

Lots of folks out there selling "VA" benefit packages and shit.

BTW, I actually checked. The VA cemetary in my zone does not take reservations in most cases. Now, my brother had his non-military spouse interred there, so he has a "reservation" to spend eternity in the same niche, but you can't normally just walk up and make prior arrangements to be interred. You have to leave that up to your survivors/estate.
