A mission to serve. Hear from veterans who have already made the transition to funeral service careers.
Courage. Discipline. Integrity. The values and skills that veterans have honed over the years align well with funeral professions. From funeral directors and crematory operators to cemetery managers and maintenance and grounds crew, financial advisors and insurance sales, there are a wide variety of funeral career options available to veterans of all backgrounds and interests. Here are some examples of veterans who are fulfilling their mission in a funeral service profession.
I joined both the military and the funeral profession for the same fundamental reason: to serve (and not be served). This program is a great opportunity for funeral professionals to recruit wonderful and dedicated veterans.
At the end of the day, all I really wanted from my military service was to make a difference in people’s lives. That’s ultimately what led me to a funeral service career.
That early sense of wanting to make connections and serve people is really what led me to first the military and then funeral service.
