Serving Military Families, Veterans and First Responders

Unique features at American Heritage Funeral HomeIn 2002, American Heritage Funeral Home was chosen to lead the Homeless Veterans Burial Program for the Dignity Memorial® network. Through this program, we provide honorable military funeral services for homeless veterans without family. In the years since we began the program, we have coordinated with Houston National Cemetery to ensure that homeless veterans are buried with the respect and dignity they deserve.

However, caring for homeless veterans is just part of our dedication to military families. We design funeral and memorial services appropriate for veterans and active-duty personnel from all branches of the U.S. armed forces. Among the special services we offer is a horse-drawn Civil War caisson. We also have a strong relationship with the Patriot Guard Riders.

We also highly value our community’s first responders. We consider it a privilege to work with the families of area police officers and firefighters, including the Houston Fire Department Honor Guard, to plan funerals and memorials of the highest standards.

"The staff at American Heritage Funeral Home took special care of our family after the loss of my son Aaron. My son was a soldier, and every step was taken to make sure he was honored. Julisa and staff did a exceptional job in every aspect of the funeral. Julisa kept in touch with us through the whole process. Making sure all questions were answer

ed and helping to bring a peace to our situation. Many thanks to Julisa and American Heritage Funeral Home for honoring my son. If you are ever in need of a funeral home director after the loss of a veteran, contact Julisa. She'll honor your family member like her own."

"American Heritage is the perfect funeral home if you are using the Veterans Cemetery for the burial of your loved one. I used them for my dad years ago and had the most beautiful service with the military caisson. It was so emotional and I will never forget it. Since my mother was going to be buried with my dad at the Veterans Cemetery, I decided

to use them again when she died last month. I had a small private service, but was still very pleased with their services and the convenience to the cemetery. It is farther from my home in Clear Lake, but the decision was a good one: so we didn't have to have a funeral procession from across town!! They also took care of all the plans with the cemetery so I didn't have to do anything extra. I want to thank you for taking care of both of my parents during two very sad times!"
