Most people think a burial at sea is something that happens only in the movies, but it’s an option that is still widely used today. For many Sailors and Marines, there is no more honored choice for their mortal remains than burial at sea. Since the burial is from an active military ship, family members are not able to attend the ceremony in person. However, some family members choose to observe the ceremony from a civilian ship that is positioned nearby. For families who want to attend the service, civilian organizations offer burial at sea from a civilian vessel.
