Veteran's Flag Raising Memorial Program


At Sharp Funeral Homes, we are proud to do our part in honoring our country's veterans and giving back to those whose sacrifice and patriotism define our great nation. We designed our Veteran's Flag Raising Memorial Program to remember the service and sacrifice of our community’s veterans.

Each month, we will honor the life and memory of a veteran by raising the flag at one of our chapels in their memory. Each of our four chapels will display a framed biography of the veteran for the entire month, and the family of the veteran will receive a certificate of participation. We will also share each biography on our website and social media pages. To view all veterans we have honored through our program, visit our Memorial Program Veterans page
