1: What type of service are you thinking about?
Traditional Service: A service is held at the Air Force Academy Cadet Chapel or Community Center
Chapel followed by a graveside service at the USAFA cemetery.
Graveside Service: Since most of our families travel from out of the local area, services are usually
conducted in the hometown prior to coming to the Academy. Therefore, a graveside service is
conducted at the USAFA Cemetery with no services held at the Cadet or Community Center Chapel.
Memorial Service: When remains are not interred in the USAFA Cemetery, a memorial service may
still be conducted at the Cadet or Community Center Chapel.
2: What type of casket would you prefer? Selecting a casket is a personal choice that can be made
with the assistance of your family and a funeral director in your home town.
