A 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 (PDF), or by making an appointment at the Story County Veterans Affairs office.
