Question Will you get buried in a National Cemetary?

Yep... I'm going to be cremated someday and be buried in the above ground memorial area at Indiantown National Cemetery.. My wife will too...We are both Vets. Cremation... Always favored it. for all kinds of reasons...$$$$$$ why spend all that money for a casket etc..Besides....Viking were always burned...Cremation Society of Pa cost $1800.

No, I inherited some cemetery plots from my parents so my wife and I will be cremated and buried next to my parents. We already have the marker in place.

Spread my ashes on the flat tops. Or as a secondary Allegheny National Cemetery - closer to home...

Nope - My plan A) is to be burned then my ashes loaded into shotgun shells... Take that geese LOL However I really don't have any hunting buddies anymore and am the only hunter in the family... so that's probably not happening.

Plan B) also burned but mix my ashes with cement and use to anchor a nice bench either halfway up the trail at my favorite GL or overlooking my favorite lake. Not sure if the PGC will allow it or the property owner of the lake will... but I do know there are memorial benches at one spot(ACOE)
