    Hi, my Dad served in the Coast Guard during WWII. He is now dying and I wonder if the Coast Guard provides any honors at the Memorial Service or if they will help with the scattering of his ashes at sea? Thankyou so much. His name is Robert X. Foster.

    Very sorry to hear about your dad.

    E-mail this address: psc-dg-ras@uscg.mil or call the USCG Personnel Service Center at 785-339-3770.

    You should also contact the Department of Veterans Affairs cemeteries division. If your mother is still living, ask specifically about the Aid and Attendance benefit.

    If you haven't located his DD-214, contact the National Personnel Records Center to obtain a certified copy. If you're told it was destroyed in a fire simply re-submit the paperwork and it will magically rise like the Phoenix. Your state veterans affairs department may also have a copy.

    Again, very sad about your dad.
