Request for Interment

This form and the documents you provide will be used to confirm the interment eligibility status for the decedent.

Submission of this request does not obligate the veteran or family to have interment services at the Nebraska Veterans Cemetery at Alliance.

After receiving this form and the related eligibility documentation, cemetery staff will confirm the interment eligibility status within 48 hours. The interment will be scheduled within 72 hours unless the decedent's next-of-kin makes a request for services to be delayed beyond that time period.

Please make an appointment with a Veterans Cemetery Representative to discuss the type of interment and committal service you want for your loved ones. All services and activities at the veterans cemetery are coordinated with the next-of-kin and do not happen automatically.

Eligibility for interment is based on laws passed by Congress and incorporated into the United States Code at Title 38, Veterans Benefits - Sections 112, 2306, 2402, and 2411. These laws may change over time.

A cemetery representative will gladly provide assistance with questions you have about this form, eligibility, or cemetery services.

The Request of Interment Form is in pdf format; you can print for completion or fill in on the computer for print or electronic submission. Once completed, submit the form AND appropriate documentation by mail, in person to the Veterans Cemetery Administration Building, or by email to allen.pannell@nebraska.gov.

Please submit the following documentation with the Request for Interment Form:

  • copy of the veteran's discharge papers/DD Form 214
  • copy of a marriage license if the spouse is the decedent
