ARE DECEASED VETERANS GETTING THE RECOGNITION THEY DESERVE?
John R. “Jack” Zalewski, owner/manager, NJ Lic. #2820 of Fucillo & Warren Funeral Home in Manville and Countryside Funeral Home in Three Bridges, is making sure they do.
A two year United Sates Army veteran of the Vietnam War, Jack, along with his three children, (all licensed Funeral Directors), have always honored deceased veterans and their families by setting up a memorial at each viewing of a veteran honoring their respective branch of service and accomplishments. In addition, Military Honor Guard can be arranged for when requested by a family.
Now, as a result of a suggestion from director George Rocco Seminara Jr., director, NJ Lic. #4927 a twelve year United States Marine Corps Combat veteran of the Persian Gulf, Countryside Funeral Home will be doing even more. When permission from the family is given, every veteran's funeral procession will be led by our hearse adorned with two American flags and a magnetic decal on each side of the hearse representing the veterans branch of service. This will help recognize that a veteran's funeral procession is passing. Additionally, every vehicle in the procession behind the hearse will also have an American flag to identify the entire procession. The flags will then be kept by the driver of each vehicle in memory of the veteran.
“Our staff has always felt that most people do not notice the American flag draped casket in the back of the hearse. We wanted to do something more noticeable. Something that would alert everyone that a veteran, one who has sacrificed so much for so many, has died and draw attention to the procession, giving the veteran and their family the recognition and respect they deserve”.
“It is my hope that these added services will help to honor the distinguished service of all our veterans”.
