Veterans and their families are invited to be the guests of Glueckert Funeral Home’s Honoring Their Life and Legacy Tour of the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery on September 14th.

Departing at 9:00 AM from Glueckert Funeral Home, located at 1520 North Arlington Heights Road in Arlington Heights, and returning at 1:00 PM, guests will be provided with comfortable traveling accommodations and the opportunity to socialize with other guests during the trip to Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery, 20953 W. Hoff Road, Elwood, Illinois — about 50 miles south of Chicago.

A cemetery official will give guests a tour of the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery and immediately following the tour, guests will have a chance to visit the graves of friends and relatives, or memorials.

“I feel we need do what we can when we can to honor and support our veterans,“ comments John Glueckert, Jr., president of Glueckert Funeral Home. “A tour of the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery is part of Glueckert Funeral Home’s ongoing Honoring Their Life and Legacy efforts to inform, educate and support veterans and their families,”

A brief veteran’s benefits presentation is provided on the way to the cemetery and a box lunch will be served on the return trip to Glueckert Funeral Home.

There is no charge or obligation, and limited seating requires reservations to be made in advance.

Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery is located in Elwood, Illinois and spans 982 acres of field and forest containing about 26,600 graves of American military veterans and their loved ones.

Honorably discharged veterans, their spouses and eligible dependent children can be buried in the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery, or any other VA national cemetery, at no cost to the deceased family. Also eligible are military personnel who die on active duty, their spouses and eligible dependents.

Other burial benefits available for all eligible Veterans, regardless of whether they are buried in a national cemetery or a private cemetery, include a burial flag, a Presidential Memorial Certificate and a government headstone or marker, or service medallion for a private marker. Families of eligible decedents may also order a memorial headstone or marker when remains are not available for interment.

To make a reservation call Glueckert Funeral Home at (847) 253-0168 and additional information can be found at

Also, on December 3rd, Glueckert Funeral Home will be hosting its annual Holiday Memorial Service to celebrate and remember the lives of those we’ve lost. The service will be open to all members of the community.
