I'm sorry about your father.
It appears that it is all good advice given here.
My dad was a vet from WW2 and died in the early '80's. My mom got a folded flag, a couple of hundred bucks towards a funeral, and a signed, "signed", or robosigned letter from Ronny Reagan.
There are a couple of new veterans cemeteries in my area. I think admission is free.
However, there is one caveat. Spouses are buried directly above the first occupant to save space and keep the rows straight.
