Memorial Service Support

Worth knowing.

The National Defense Authorization Act for FY2010, Public Law 111-84, Section 631, Travel and Transportation for Deceased Members of the Uniformed Services to Attend Memorial Services, Washington, D.C., Oct. 30, 2009.

Congress established a new entitlement that authorizes travel and transportation to specific family members to attend a memorial service in honor of a deceased service member. DoD has not yet published implementing guidance regarding installation or unit memorial service entitlements for this new law.

Commanders must understand which family members are entitled to funded travel, the time allowed for travel, and any restrictions that may apply.
