Who Receives The Flag At Funeral?

Ask The Funeral Expert:

Jill – If parents are divorced and the father dies, who should the flag be presented to at the cemetery?

Funeral Expert Reply:

I believe protocol dictates that the flag go to the current spouse. If there is not a spouse it goes to the oldest child.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if I can assist with anything else.
