The effort will take place at the following locations:

• 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Dec. 7-8 and 9 a.m.-noon Dec. 9 at Rago-Christopher American Legion Post 165, 549 Merchant St., Vacaville.

Military Funeral Honors ceremonies must be scheduled in advance.

The law requires that every eligible veteran receive a military funeral honors ceremony, which includes the folding and presentation of the United States flag and the playing of “taps,” upon the family’s request. This Department of Defense program calls for the funeral director to request military funeral honors on behalf of the veteran’s family.
