Death is never easy. Even when expected, a person’s death leaves a void for those who remain. When a veteran in our community passes away, VFW Post 5712 is available and honored to perform a Final Salute. 

In the Final Salute ceremony, VFW members gather to offer a final recognition of our departed comrade.  Members file in two by two and perform an official military salute.  When all present members have rendered the salute, the highest ranking VFW member present will present the surviving family members a folded US Flag and our condolences.
