Military Funerals

 

Military Funeral Honors The rendering of military funeral honors is a way to show the nation’s deep gratitude to those who, in times of war and peace, have faithfully defended the country. This ceremonial paying of respect is the final demonstration a grateful nation can provide to its veterans’ families. The tradition of providing military funeral honors, in some form, began in ancient Greece and Rome. The funeral honors protocol of today traces its roots to these ancient ceremonies as well as to historical American experience. U.S. law now mandates the rendering of military funeral honors for an eligible veteran if requested by the family, provided at no cost by the Department of Defense. Your local Dignity Memorial® provider can help families request military funeral honors. The request form is included in the Veterans Planning Guide offered by Dignity Memorial® funeral, cremation and cemetery providers. As provided by law, an honor guard detail for the burial of an eligible veteran shall consist of not less than two members of the Armed Forces. One member of the detail shall be a representative of the parent branch of service of the deceased veteran. The honor detail will, at a minimum, perform a ceremony that includes the folding and presentation of the American flag to the next of kin and the playing of taps. Taps will be played by a bugler, if available, or by electronic recording. Please note that today there are so few buglers available that the military often cannot provide one. Should there be a need, any Dignity Memorial provider can provide an official recording of taps or assist in locating area musicians. Who is eligible? •Military members on active duty •Military retirees •Members and former members of the Selected Reserve •Eligible U.S. veterans of any war •Other U.S. veterans who served at least one term of enlistment and separated under conditions other than dishonorable Who is not eligible? •Individuals discharged from the Armed Forces under dishonorable conditions •Individuals sentenced to death or life imprisonment without parole for a federal or state capital offense •Other explicit circumstances

FF Thomas T. Silk

Silk dedication.jpg

FF Thomas Silk U.S.N. KIA 1942 Tom was the first firefighter from Newark to die while serving during WW2. Thomas was born during 1900. At the age of 17, he entered World War I in the Navy. On 6/6/1919, he was honorably discharged from the Navy. He started his Career with the Newark Fire Department on 6/9/1925, when he was appointed and issued Badge #378. On 6/16/1925, he was assigned to the School of Instruction to be taught about fire fighting. He left the School of Instruction on 7/16/1925 and was assigned to busy Truck 5. He later served with Engine 26 and on 8/14/1941, he transferred down town to another busy Company at Truck 1. With the United States entering World War II, Thomas re-enlisted as a Coxswain with the Navy on 1/12/1942. That night, a party was held at Truck 1's quarters for Silk and Eugene Reilly, Jr., also of Truck 1, who was recently drafted and about to leave for the War. Ten days later on 1/26/1942, Silk left for the War onboard the USS Spry, which was a Gun Ship in the Corvette Class. The USS Spry sailed from the Northern Island on 5/20/1942 as an escort for a convoy of ships headed to Argentina. During a battle on 9/27/1942, Thomas suffered a heart attack and died. He was the first member of the N. F. D. to lose his life in World War II. His body was sent back to Newark and buried at Holy Sepulcher Cemetery in Newark. On the one-year anniversary of his death, a plaque affixed to a large rock was dedicated in his memory and a Park was named after him. The Thomas Silk Memorial Park was located at the intersection of North First & Fourth Streets in Newark. In the last 1970's, due to vandals, the rock and plaque were relocated to the grounds of the new Training Academy on Jersey Street. On 9/1/2003, the Training Academy was moved to a new firehouse and training facility on Clinton Avenue. It was decided to clean up the rock and plaque and re-dedicate it at a ceremony to be held on May 27th, 2005 at the new firehouse.
