Flag and Grave Markers

They are also available to individual families requesting them from the department.

Veterans organizations interested in obtaining such flags and markers should submit a request on their official stationary to Department of Military Affairs, Neshaminy Manor Center, Rt. 611 and Almshouse Road, Doylestown, PA 18901.

The following are the types of grave markers available:

  • Civil War
  • Spanish-American War
  • World War I
  • World War II
  • Korean Conflict
  • Vietnam Era
  • Persian Gulf War

Whoever buys or receives for use as junk or scrap metal any veteran's grave marker or emblem is also subject to the same penalties.
