|Military Burial at Sea
Burial (or the scattering of cremains)
at sea is available to all veterans
and dependents, and is provided by
the Navy or U.S. Coast Guard. A
flag is required, and if supplied by
the family can be returned. If
supplied by the Navy, it will not be.
Because sea burials are done at the
convenience of the military, the
family may not witness sea burial.
Bodies waiting for sea burial must be embalmed to a state of preservation that
will last for at least 60 days. (This is accomplished with undiluted embalming
A non-sealing metal casket must be used, bound with six bands of nylon. The
casket must carry 150 lbs. of extra weight.
20- Two inch holes must be drilled in the top, bottom, and at each end.
