Presidential Memorial Certificates
Pres Mem Cert.jpgA Presidential Memorial Certificate (PMC) is an engraved paper certificate, signed by the current President, to honor the memory of deceased Veterans who are eligible for burial in a national cemetery.

This program was initiated in March 1962 by President John F. Kennedy and has been continued by all subsequent Presidents.

An eligible recipient (i.e., next of kin, a relative or friend upon request, or an authorized service representative acting on behalf of such relative or friend) may apply for a PMC by completing a VA Form 40-0247, Presidential Memorial Certificate Request Form.

That form can be found online at or by making an appointment at the Story County Veterans Affairs office.
