Mr. Letizia, I’m not sure what you’re asking about “buying a marker.” If you mean that you think you’re entitled to a free marker from the VA, you are correct. But that’s something you have to contact the VA about. Funeral Consumers Alliance (the site you’re reading) doesn’t have anything to do with government markers. You can contact your VA office by using the number listed in the last sentence of the article above. For your privacy, I’ve taken out your mailing address. Please don’t put private information on public message boards like this – it could expose you to scam artists.
