About Our Company
US Patriot Services is a privately held company, organized, owned equally and operated by two individuals one of whom is a disabled veteran of the United States Army who served in Viet Nam. Our company engages in the sale of burial caskets, primarily for veterans and their spouses. This particular sector of the funeral services industry exists in a highly competitive market environment. Caskets represent the total product offerings of U.S. Patriot Services, and also make-up a large portion of the products sold by funeral homes.
Our company is in the business of retailing burial caskets. We purchase these specially designed caskets directly from the manufacturer, they are all 18 gauge steel and made in the USA. After the sale, if the customer elects their casket is stored at a fully insured and bonded warehouse for lifetime and the warehouse delivers the casket whenever and wherever the customer desires.
U.S. Patriot Services does not represent itself as having any affiliation with any agency or department of the United States government or of any state. It does not represent itself to be an organization of veterans chartered by the United States Congress or by the government of any state. It characterizes itself as an enterprise of “veterans serving veterans”. A corporate officer, director, and sales personnel are honorably discharged veterans of U.S. military service. All of our administrative and sales personnel are trained to adhere to this strict characterization of corporate purpose and policy.
We do not seek customers by means of door-to-door solicitations. We utilize direct mail advertisements, and from these solicitations we receive invitations to have our sales personnel visit the homes of prospective customers pursuant to specific invitations detailing date and time. At these pre-set appointments, our sales personnel are trained to first deliver to the potential customer a booklet printed by the federal government that details the programs and benefits available for qualifying veterans. U.S. Patriot Services purchases these booklets from the Government Printing Office at a cost of $5 each and give to each customer so our Veterans are fully aware of all of their benefits whether they purchase a casket or not. Our goal is to inform all Veterans of their benefits they are entitled to.
Our sales personnel have all had extensive training in the funeral/cemetery industry and deal with customers who represent a broad spectrum of our national society. Every effort is made to inform and educate the veterans as to the specific product they are purchasing, the services that are provided to them at national cemeteries and accompanying benefits if they qualify. We employ full and part time independent contractors preferring veterans, including a retired Navy Seal.
