Tour Fort Custer National Cemetery and Hear Taps at a Veteran’s Service
Military funerals can be heart-wrenching. See the honor guard pay last respects to a fallen hero at Fort Custer National Cemetery.
The 24 toughest notes for a bugler to play is "Taps." You hear that, and often the crack a 21-gun salute at military funerals. The folded flag presented to the family of the deceased is also a hallmark of the service. Take a tour of Fort Custer National cemetery with a funeral director as she explains much more about the grounds and the traditions.
Kari Northey is a funeral director who has a YouTube channel dedicated to answering all of those questions people have about funeral homes, but are afraid to ask. Not only will she give you advice on how to pick out a casket, her page follows a body's step-by-step process through at a funeral home, from arrival to the cemetery, including a tour of the embalming room.
Watch as Kari attends a burial at Fort Custer Cemetery and drives down the Avenue of Flags and films a veteran's funeral service. She spends a lot of time on-camera in the car explaining each aspect of the ceremony and its meaning.
